Well, when I sent pics of this one to the client, his response was “WOW!”... so I guess that’s a good thing.

Not a lot to say about this… following the same process as before, but making each one a little different has kept me from getting bored.

I roughed out the shape of the final bowl last night. Probably have a little over an hour left on it before I can start the poly process. I don’t know if others have had this experience, but black walnut sure soaks up the poly. Took many coats in order to get a little shine on it (but I might not be allowing enough time between coats… I get impatient)

I’m just really pleased that the client is responding well to each bowl. We’ll see what he thinks of the 4th, which is pretty different shape-wise from the first three.

Nice work and I really like the outside of the bowl with the live edge a bit of bark.
How many of these did the buyer commission from you?
Keep it up!
