This bowl was made for a lady in our Florida church. She asked if i would make her a bowl for her to make bread in. She wanted it to be fairly large it measures just under 14” x 4” and has a mineral oil finish. I aquired several pices of Cherry from one of our township cemeteries, the tree was dead and needed to be rmoved.

All comments are welcome, thanks for looking!

Very nice bowl Chuck, also like the way you have got it centered. Lady should be pleased and you should score some freshly baked bread.

I love this bowl and you have used a lot of skill in placing the figure and color of this wonderful piece of wood into the design of this bowl. It’s an outstanding eye catcher.

You can always see when some thought has gone into planning a piece, love the sap balance to this one Chuck, bey your looking forward to “pay back” with some home made bread,
Those rings add a lot to the piece :)

That a fine job on the bowl. I agree, maybe some bread will be headed your way soon.

Good on you, using wood that may have gone to a landfill, or some other less noble use. Plus helping out a Church Lady, and then turning such a beautiful natural bowl. Some may call that sapwood an imperfection. I say embrace the imperfection, it makes for better looking projects.

Thanks for posting.

Beautiful bowl I can’t wait for the day I have time to learn how to turn bowls. Currently have only done pens and bottle stoppers
