Project Information

Here's another piece of the salvaged black walnut from the recent tornado. I would have turned it deeper, but there was a small rotted limb joined on the underside and I had to remove it. It left a cavity on one side underneath. The wood dictated the shape. But the burl pattern was so pretty, I just went as far as I could and then laquered it with several spray coats. You can see the magnificient burl when you zoom the pic. I was taught that if it holds water, it's a bowl, and if it doesn't, it's a piece of art. Either way, it's beauthiful wood and I'm glad I was able to keep it from shattering.

Hey Luvswood this is a very nice piece of work, I like your idea of using salvaged wood. Too bad so many good trees were destroyed around Tuscaloosa. Some of that area now looks like a war zone , but they are moving ahead quite well. Keep at it Keep smiling John
