this is a walnut bowl that I turned and showed at my wood turning club meeting. It includes the sap wood to give it variation of the two different colors. The bowl was turned with the center of the log left in the bowl. while this is slightly dangerous it does give a nice “bulls eye’ on the side. the center did check some but with CA glue in hand during the final turning it has lasted several months without continuing to check or crack. The finish is polyurethane

I love the contrast of hard wood and sapwood. Nice bowl.

Nice bowl, I particularly like the sapwood/heartwood contrast too,which must be the most dramatic in walnut.

Very beautiful, I love the contrast between the sapwood and the heartwood also. Walnut is such a pretty wood, and your bowl looks like it has waves in it. I can almost see some other lovely bowls in the background. Hint hint… ; )

Yes there were some other lovely bowls in the background but they weren’t mine. This photo was taken at my wood turning club meeting.
