Walnut Turned Bowl (Oct 2010)


I'm not sure if I should call this a shallow bowl or a deep platter.  Regardless, it's a stunning piece of  wood from the crotch of a friend's tree.  There was a crack that opened near the bottom of this picture that I've filled with CA.  Normally I'd scrap the piece with this intrusive of a crack, but I couldn't dispose of such a gorgeous hunk of walnut.  The chatoyance of the sapwood/heartwood transition area is a sight to behold

Finished with orange shellace and home-made danish oil.  12.5" x 2".
