Natural Rim Deep Bowl #221

Natural Rim Deep Bowl #221

Piece #221 – Black Walnut – 6.5″ dia x 6″ – SOLD

This small, natural rim, walnut bowl was made from a huge walnut tree that once stood in Dean Enos’s front yard – until nature took it down. Dean and Joyce Enos live in Greenback, TN. I met them at the Foothills Mall Arts and Crafts show this spring.

Dean told me he had a pile of walnut limbs he had been saving in his barn for about four years. “This wood is really seasoned well and ready to turn.” he said. Man was he right. It is a dream to turn. I took four pieces from Dean. So far I have made three pieces from Dean’s walnut tree.

This bowl had an application of tung oil applied an let dry for about a week. Then I put on two coats of Behlen’s Rock Hard Table Varnish – sanding between coats with 320 grit paper. When that had dried about a week or so I buffed it real well with my Beal Buffing System.
