A former co-worker of mine called the other day asking if I would like some Black Walnut …..... Duh, of course. Well long story short, I made her this natural edge bowl. I liked the contrast from the sapwood and I haven’t made one in awhile so I hope she likes it.

Thanks for looking and as always all comments are welcome.

Hey Chuck,

I’ve done enough of these to know how challenging and fun they can be. To keep the bark on these piece means that they must be harvested at certain times of the year, a great deal of careful turning, and then a lot of luck. Can’t wait to show you a couple of mine. Nice work, I’m sure she will love it.

Beautiful wood – and people think I am joking when I say that the two black walnut trees in my back yard are part of my retirement fund. Great job!

That is a most beautiful turned bowl. The color contrast and edge are artistic.

Great piece of turning Chuck, always tricky to keep the bark on. She is going to love it.
