Walnut and Maple Cresents Bowl From A Board


This unique bowl is actually turned from several laminations cut from a single board that was made from black walnut and curly hard maple and then re-assembled into its final shape. The walnut and maple were laminated together in a manner that produced the distinctive maple crescents on both sides of the bowl and provide considerable visual interest. Normally, bowls constructed with this technique have straight sides, but I prefer to turn them with a subtle, but distinct, parabolic curve from the base to the rim which produces a much more elegant form. The bottom of the bowl has been decorated with a textured ring and inside of several concentric groves as proof that it was turned with as much care and attention as the rest of the bowl. Finished with several coats of Danish oil and polished to a pleasant silky sheen, this bowl is as nice to hold as it is to look at. An heirloom quality item that will be in your family for generations.
