This is the sister bowl to #64- the other half of the log. It finished up at 6 1/2” x 2 1/4 high w/ 1/8” wall.
I was getting tired of making the typical convex outer shape bowl so I made this one concave. It is chestnut wood and finished with clear matte spray.

Wow! Jim I think I might like this one more than #64! I do like the shine on #64 better than the matte on this one,
Great shape!! I really like the concave shape of this!!
Keep up the great work, thank you for sharing!!

The end grain on chestnut is worse than yellow pine, isn’t it? I’m curious, is that American chestnut or Asian? They still sell some American chestnut, but it’s mostly from dug up dead trunks that tend to be very wormy.

Another fine bowl Jim. Your right about changing shapes of things you turn. The more you do different shapes the more interesting it is. Keep them coming.

That’s a very nice bowl. I like color, grain pattern, and the shape too.
