Honey Locust Shallow Bowl

I had some Honey Locust roughed out blanks drying for a couple of years and decided to see what one looked like when turned.

It has some interesting grain patterns including a little iridescence and some dark staining. Finished with the Ty Fine Finishes oil. The bowl is 11” in diameter and 1.5” high.

Going to be a present for the friend who gave me the oil.

Thanks for looking!

Love the job you did on this. The coloration of the wood along the edge/rim is just fantastic.

Roger- Thanks! The tree this came from was probably well over 150 years old. Hope you don’t have to wait that long!!

Bob- Thanks! I was thinking ice cream- that’s a food, right?!?

Meilie- Thanks! Wish there was a way to capture the 3-D effect on some of the grain.

Jim- Thanks!

Jay- Thanks! I didn’t notice the darker stain until after I started turning.

Beautiful! Honey Locust is one of my favorite woods but the best I can do is about three inches. I envy you . . .

Doe- Thanks! The tree this came from was very old. It was near a house that was built in the 1800’s. I believe it was probably nearly that old.
