This is one of the largest bowls I have made. It’s 7 inches wide and 3 1/2 inches high. I even finished the bottom off this time. The color of the bowl is acutally like the top view picture. I used the french polish and it’s babybutt smmmooth! I did the design just playing around with the wood. I’m happy with the results.
Thanks for looking!

Cool bowl. I really like the stepped inside.

Thanks for the nice comments! This one wasn’t as spalted once I got into it. Still enjoyed doing it.
