Roughing Out Walnut Bowls

by Motoko, February 23, 2015

I’ve been a turning animal the past couple of weeks. That’s because I bought a bit too much wood and my garage shop is turning into a jungle of tree stumps. The bowls you see are all made of Walnut. They are still damp so I’m roughing them out. The grains look like hyena skin. So pretty. I’m looking forward to finishing them in a few months.

The batch includes the bowl in the photo above, which is probably the widest one I’ve turned to date. I started at 11 1/2″, and now it’s probably down to 11 1/4″ or so.
