Deep Natural Edge Bowl #222


Deep Natural Edge Bowl #222

Piece #222 – Spalted Maple – 8″ dia x 8″ – SOLD

I did a presentation for the Maryville, TN Arts and Crafts Guild in March. It was a big success. I had several people give me seasoned wood that they had in their yard. The material for this bowl came from Rose Marie in Maryville, TN.

In the design stage this piece had a small hidden foot that made it look like it was floating. However, after reverse chucking it to turn the bottom with the foot, it decided to jump off my lathe. Fortunately it did not hit me but it destroyed the bottom of the piece.

At the time I was a little ticked off so I decided to set it aside and come back to it. A week later I put it back on the lathe rounded it out again and finished the bottom flat, as there was not enough wood left on the bottom for the small base.
