My first big bowl commission. The walnut I got off ebay. This was a fun one for me. Now I do not want to send it out. But alas I have too.It is almost 9 inches in diameter. The finish is wipe on poly.

Thanks for lookin

This looks like the perfect bowl, I can see why you would like to keep it. Well done.

Love me that walnut stuff. I just rough turned 2 bowls and a platter this weekend.

You did a great job. Enjoy that round stuff.
