Bowls, Bowls, Bowls, etc

I recently completed my first segmented bowl turning as a birthday gift for Kate and decided that I was long overdue in posting the various bowls I’ve turned.  I’m still in the beginning stages, trying different techniques and woods, but, so far, I’ve been pleased with what I’ve been able to produce.  I hope you enjoy them…

Here is Kate’s Bowl in finished form:

And here is how it started ‘life’ as a bowl…

For Kerry’s birthday I made some Walnut bowls that were originally rough turned in Nov. 2016.  Since they were turned from ‘green’ wood, I left them thick, but uniform thickness so that they could dry without cracking before I did the final turning.  They came out well enough that I plan to do a lot more of this kind of turning.

Two Walnut bowls I made for Kerry, these were turned from a single chunk of tree trunk I gathered locally.

And this view gives you an idea on how these bowls began…

Finally, here is the collection of bowls I’ve done to date…

Miscellaneous bowls I’ve turned. Note bowl in foreground is my first turning. The light center was from the Maple patch I had to add because I cut through the bottom! Good save, I’d say!

And lastly, because these begged to be photographed when I took the bowl photos…
