Salad Mixing Bowl
I'm not sure what else to call this bowl. It's a bowl to hold some extra salad. It was a little bit of a challenge since I had not previously turned a bowl this deep. The bowl is made from the "barn lumber" used for some other pieces on the project page.
|This may seem like a lot of pictures for just one bowl, but the grain patterns are so interesting that I didn't know just which ones to use. The bowl is made from two pieces glued together. That provides evenmore combinations.|
|Just more of the variations. The light spot is a little knothole which was filled with sanding dust when I took this picture.|
|I used the lathe for the first application of oil. That allows me to polish the finish to a soft luster.|
|Off the lathe and ready for use. The picture on the right is like taking a picture of Baron -- it is so dark and so deep in color that it almost disappears into itself.|
|Variations on the same theme.|
|The contrast provided by the sapwood makes it a fascinating piece.|
