here is another one of what i call a fire bowl i have great fun making these kind of bowls and everyone that see them the love the crazy splash of colour in them and the feel of the wood this one is for a very very good friend when i give it to him he was delighted with it and could not believe that i give it to him i was delighted that he liked it so much you see he is always on the lookout for dry wood for me to play with and he has brought many car boot or trunk full over and over again down thorough the years a friend that is worth a bowl ….
this one ended up being 12 inches at the rim and 5 inches at the bottom it stands 5 1/2 inches tall
finish is sand and sell and bees wax o it looks a lot like the last bowl that i posted but not as dark and a diferent shape of bottom on this one

all comments welcome

Really cool. I particularly like the way you finished the foot and the rim. Do you cut out your rings on the scroll saw or do you use a bandsaw?

Really great Branch, after looking at your blog and now the finished project I will some time in the future have to have a go at one of these. You have gone a long way from your first segmented pieces. Well done mate, love it.

Mate, that is beautiful. I’ve been thinking about doing one of these for a while, now you have inspired me and it is top of my list.
Thanks for sharing this and the Blog you did.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
