The decoration on this spalted sycamore bowl is a hand carved and burned knot. This project was full of firsts: first carving of this sort, first time working with spalted wood, first time working with anything this big and unbalanced on my lathe, first time turning green wood, first time drying green wood. It was a challenge, but I’m pretty pleased with the results over all. It’s finished with danish oil and wax.

Looks great, what do you plan on using the bowl for?

No idea. :)

I’ll find something to do with it. It was built just as a learning experience though.

Have your say...
