This 156 piece segmented Oak bowl is turned all end grain, charred and wire brushed to accentuate the
outside grain. It is 13” dia. and 9” tall.

These two small Mesquite natural edged bowls were made from the pieces obtained from azwoody’s mill. Thanks Chas.

I haven’t seen burnt pieces like that. There was a large fire along the river banks, I could get you some pieces pre burnt haha.

I really like the look you’ve created with this bowl. The contrast between inside and outside is very dramatic and the finish you’ve achieved over the charred wood is excellent. Very nice!

I envisioned more of a grain difference between the vertical and horizontal segments. It was my first attempt at a basket weaved look. Plan “B” will be different. The charring did open up the glue joints as a word of caution to others. The base is inserted within the first ring.

Jack, it’s been days since you posted this, and now it’s time to comment on it. If I had to pick in or out, my choice would be the inside. It’s beautiful, where the outside looks like it’s, it’s burnt!!..... The horizontal glue lines are just butte ugly. Other than that, you were doing good until you lit the match.

Glad you didn’t burn the Mesquites. ........... Jerry (in Tucson)

Thanks for all the kind words. Opinions sure vary on this bowl. Hard to reach a valid consensus.
