« Part 21: Spalted Ambrosia Maple Fruit Bowl! Part 22 of Journey into Woodturning series Part 23: Custom Hot Rod Shifter! »

Bowl blank of Bloodwood, just in time for Halloween! This bowl turned out beautiful, then again, I’m bias. Tell me what you think of it.

I drew out the concept of the design and its close, not exact. The idea for the side of the bowl was to have a large bead that had crosscuts in it, like a large decorating tool might make. Above and below would be smaller beads to highlight the section. Unfortunately, I got lazy holding the tool on the final pass and got a catch in the middle of the top bead, which is why there is no top bead.

The design changed now that a portion of the bowl had to slimmed down. I was able to maintain a curve of the inside to match the outside. This was the real challenge for this bowl. Thinner walls then I’ve ever made, taller and deeper.

I think it will be a nice candy dish, even when it’s not Halloween.

Here is this week’s video: LSD on Bloodwood!
