  1. Hickory Bowl With Pyrography

    Here's a hickory bowl I recently finished. It is 13×5 and finished with walnut oil. This is my first time doing pyrography on a turning. I used a propane torch to scorch the smoother sections and a basket weave nib to burn the pattern into the piece. If you want to see the process, you can...

    This ash bowl cracked in four different places before it was even finished, so I made it an experimental bowl. All the patterns began as doodling, and slowly morphed into some kind of crazy tribal tattoo. I had intended to completely blacken the inside of the bowl with a torch, but I noticed...
