This is a demo bowl I did for the high school class last year and just got around to finishing it. It is black walnut – 6” dia. and 2” high with a 1/8” wall. It is finished with a clear glaze.

It will go in the display case at school for the next classes to view- kinda to get them interested in turning.

Cheers, Jim

That’s a beautiful walnut bowl Jim, well done sir.

Exceptional finish as well.

Is this the clear glaze that was used?

Good turning Jim. Show and tell for the class. I have a couple cans of that triple glaze I am waiting for that right project to use it on. Looks like it works great.
