This bowl is fifteen inches across, about ten inches deep, and came from a walnut crotch. Never was able to get it balanced on the lathe well, So I had to turn it fairly slow. Finished with lacquer and paste wax.

Now this is a bowl ! and an absolutely beautiful end product. Did you reinforce your natural edge with anything ? or is that asking what is none of my business ? Simply beautiful work !

Oh my, Spectacular colors, shape, size and natural edge. You have very nice lathe skills I believe. This should be any easy daily top 3.

I saturated the bark with thin super glue. Usually does the job quite well.

Beautiful bowl, the grain and color are terrific, I’ve never had the courage to do a natural edge.

What a beautiful bowl! Quite the size too. Do you have any more pictures you can share with us? I’d love to see more. Great job showing off this piece of wood.
