Halfway done with my commission. For this one, I decided to have more of a transition effect from the top down. So, it’s full live edge around the rim, but then that transitions into partially ground bark, which then segues into exposed wood.

I also finished bowl #3 today, but that’s in the process of getting poly.

We’ll see what you think of this new one, but I already sent pics to the client, and he approves.

I guess that’s the important approval.

Very nice. The dark in the bottom is pretty cool.

Cool transition!
I like all the outside and it balances the inside.
Great bowl.
Can’t wait to see number three.

You are doing a great job. Are you doing all of these with a grinder and forstner bits?

Thank you! It’s paddle bits, grinder, and sanding discs on my drill.
