Hair Bowl

The world’s ugliest bowl . . . but I couldn’t resist because I think that the pun is the noblest form wit.

I forgot the name of the wood; it’s a deep orange colour. When I started turning the bark flew off—no surprise there. Underneath was what looked like very coarse dog fur. I should have just admired it for a while and turned it off, but no, I had to leave it.

When I got to the bottom, I saw a dragonfly pattern. I felt quite grumpy about resisting to humour but finished with turner’s polish anyway.

I think I’m going to have to turn off the hair eventually – the pesky thing is shedding more than our dog.

Love the name and that is a unique looking bowl, fleas??? lol,,,,
The fur is the character, my vote is leave it and spray the clear on it, as commented by cosmic.
Great looking bowl !!

Nice and very unique. I agree with the others——leave it as is.

That is cool to have that pretty of a wood under that hairy bark. It is not Osage Orange, though. That is a much more yellow wood and the bark is not hairy! It sure had a nice color and grain pattern and no cracks!!

Thanks everyone for your comments. The hair is staying.

Jim: I guess it’s a beauty and the beast bowl :) I think the wood is some kind of locust; it’s a lot more orange than osage.

Well done for going with a Natural Bowl. If you take the hair off then you will have a hairless bowl. lol

Even if you decide to turn the fur off I think you should leave at least a little near the top edge as it gives a very unique look to it.

Remarkable, I would not change a thing, except of course just enough to stabilize the remaining ” fur”. I think it’s very artistic and think you should show it.

-- Im so impressed with what people can do, and I wonder how they do it. Thats what keeps me doing it.

Have your say...
