This is a bowl I turned wile attending a class with David Marks in Nov ‘08. Great class didn’t need but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to attend a class with a renowned master craftsman and a great down to earth guy. I left the knot as it was that is why I picked that peace of wood. Wile everyone else was going for the more solid peace I went for it I figured if I mess it up maybe David could show me something else to do with it. Instead it came out better then I and David thought it would. After I was done the guys joked and said that the knot being open made it a true peace of art because it was useless as a bowl it couldn’t hold anything. The finish is just a Tung oil with multiple layers and a lot of elbow… Glad you enjoyed the bowl Thank you.

That is an awesome looking bowl. Did you fill the spalted or knot area with something? Also what finish did you use.

You know you watch someone on TV and you get one impression then when you meet them in person. Well just say it changed my mind on him.

Dan to my surprise it was easer than I first thought. The knot is intimidating but was allot of fun to work with. The only scare was doing the finish around the knot now that was a challenge.
