Well not being 100percent happy with the first piercing attempt thought I would try again. Made with American Black Walnut measures 6” along the edge 1 3/8” tall and the wings are 1/8” thick. The piercing is done with a dremel and finished with Danish Oil.
Sorry about photo quality

Well done as this is not an easy turning to do.

That must have been tough to turn but the results look like they were worth it.
Thank for sharing!

Very nice….if you turned that on the lathe, I would really like to know how you did it. I can also see using a scroll saw with a spiral blade with bowl upside down.

Thank you all


Yes it was turned on the lathe after cutting out a triangle. Making sure you keep the fingers clear of the wings. Once all the turning was done I used the Dremel type multi tool to cut out the holes

I’m going to try to attempt making this. Notice I said try to attempt here. That’s a lot of skill here, something I need more of. Nice looking bowl.
