Default Walnut Bowl

Had a customer that came in. She said she had been down to art gallery and seen my turnings but wanted a slightly bigger bowl than I had down there. So on Monday after coring the others I turned this bowl for her. It is 13 1/2" X 3 1/2". She also said she wanted it shiney as it was going to be a display bowl for fruit and she may be used for like dinner rolls. So I finished it with 9 light coats of WOP. I am not that sure about the shine but she loved it. For free walnut and she paid $75 for it I didn't argue.

Thanks to all. Bill it was just good to get back at the lathe. Last couple of weeks have been pretty stressful and especially for the wife. But it will pass with time.

Really nice! With a shine like that you could even make hubcaps <just kidding>. I am sure your customer is very pleased - as she should be, that's what custom work is all about: making for the customer exactly what they want! Great piece! OPG3
