This is the second cut from the burl that my neighbor, Jeannie, gave me. This one is for her.

It is finished with clear gloss lacquer.

Cheers, Jim

You barely had enough material to get a bowl out of Jim. Great for fruit! I sure am a dark wood fan.

Love the imperfections and live edge. The finish with the grain really makes it stand out. Excellent job !!! Mel

What’s so good about that? Almost every bowl I try to make ends up looking similar to that.

Just kidding, that is so cool. How can that be turned without it flying apart? It has an ancient artifact look

Delicate job there Jim. Looks like the cookie monster got carried away on this one. This one is more for the art category. Nice work.

Hard to see the grain in the picture, but I bet is is spectacular.

Thanks for all the nice comments

Hi John, this was the piece that was supposed to be throw away when the burl was flattened for the last two flat slabs from it. I could not throw it away! I get so few burls.

Hi Brian, this walnut burl did not have the beautiful pattern I got out of the hard maple burl I got a few years ago.

Cheers, Jim

It’s beautiful timber and the craftsmanship has certainly used the fault to advantage making a gorgeous bowl.
