I’ve been trying to inspire my sister to take some photos of some of my projects for quite some time now…. She typically only shoots portraits but I managed to talk her into this one. I think she did pretty good on these!

I think you did pretty darn good on the bowl, too (was gonna use a stronger word, but figured it wouldn’t go over too well! Great work!

Really nice use of the wood. Did you use a grinder or hand tools to carve it?

Excellent photos of a superb piece of eye-candy. This is outta the ball park craftsmanship and artistry. Beautiful work and you can almost see/feel the patience it must have taken to create this.

Thanks for the great comments. This is one of my favorite kind of project to build, it does take a lot of patience and sand paper but it is very rewarding to watch the flow of the wood grain emerge from under all the scratches.

Here is a link to the blog on the build of this that describes the carving process and the “green vein” stone inlays:

That last photo is especially nice. I love the turquoise (or malachite?) inlay.
