Thanks for your patience a few minutes ago when all you saw was an apology for not having pictures here. Now enjoy the pictures if you like them.

This bowl is Chilean Mesquite showing off the growth rings. It’s 13 7/8” across and 4 3/4” tall with foot. The actual bowl depth is 2 3/4”.

The next picture shows the hollowed foot.
Another 2 pictures of the bowls shown on the “Mesquite Bowls” thread. This is 14 3/4 OD and 3 3/4” high. Wall thickness is 5/16-3/8” thick.
The inside

The bottom.

Here are 2 forms from our native Velvet Mesquite. These are also pretty small compared to the bowls above as the Velvet is not found in areas that get a lot of water like yards, parks or apartment or condo complexes. Mostly found in desert environments that are undergoing development into residential or commercial properties. I believe it’s the prettiest in the Mesquite family.
The bottoms

The forms right side up.

I really like what I did to the hollow form, or what I call a Natural Top form. Anyway, the difference in growth ring size can be seen here with natural watering as apposed to regular watering for the imported Mesquites.

What do you think of my backdrop? ............ Jerry (in Tucson)

I agree the velvet mesquite has much more character than the Chilean.

Fantastic work, Jerry. The backdrop is too clever by half.

The flair/reflection off the flash on the screen sucks, if you are so in love with Lumber Jocks, well?? Maybe get a lap dog
The bowls look nice!!

I’ll tell you up front. I’m not in love with LJ, but out of the 3 sites I’m a member of, it’s the best and most active. Also, what do my dogs have to do with anything??? I do have 2 dogs, but they’re too big for my lap. I also know that the flair (glare) is obnoxious, but in order to get the LJ backdrop, it had to be there. What you probably can’t see is the title of the top post on the page I took the picture of. It’s the title of this particular post which I thought was kind of unique or just plain ole different…....

Instead of being rude most of the time, bite your tongue when viewing posts and pictures and move on the the next post if you don’t like what you see. I know I’ve been rude to some posters, but you take the cake.. Just in the last couple of days I almost defended your butte, so lighten up a little…

Thanks for saying my bowls look good. I’ll take that as a valid compliment. ............... Jerry (in Tucson)

Jimbo, thanks. That is a China Berry bowl I use to get Mesquites elevated a little higher in the picture. It’s beautiful wood, but even being dead and dry for a looong time, when turned, it moved a lot more than I any wood I’ve ever turned…... I’ll post pictures of it one of these days….....

Thanks Candy, you are in a small demographic on liking exposed feet for bowls. A member of an Australian site I’m a member of said he saw Sasquatch when he looks at my bowl. My first thought is he was saying something complimentary about one of our political figures wife. He then replied back with “Big Foot” instead. My bad!! ............ Jerry (in Tucson)
