Claro Walnut burl. 8” square 4 1/2” tall. This is my first “footed” bowl. Finished with Tung Oil and Briwax.

Zeke,
that is a real beauty, I love it, especially the feet. Finish is real good too.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
