Black walnut bowl is 7 1/2” in diameter and 3” high.

Finish is Mahoney’s Walnut Oil, buffed with the Beall System.

Grumpymike—I used a shop-made texturing tool:

Eddie Castelin did a YouTube video ( http://youtu.be/G1DR3Ptv1QQ ) on making these tools. It has a spherical magnet at the bottom of hole with a bronze bushing and ball-bearing.

Eddie sells the bearing/bushing combo on his website: http://eddiecastelin.com/products_and_services

The rotary burr came from Grizzly.
