footed walnut bowl

This was an experiment in contrast between textured wood and non textured wood. I like it but don't know if I'll do another. I have about 2 hours in the texture alone. About another hour in the carving of the handle and feet and about 45 minutes in the initial turning of the inside and outside. It is Walnut about 6" across.

The skill and craftsmanship is impeccable, outstanding just do not like the feet.

I was really liking this bowl until you turned it over.

Have you thought about naming this bowl, “The Agony of De Feet.”

I like it! Very unique. And I like the feet too. How did you do the texturing?

Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!

I like the way the texture seems to 'overflow' from the outside to the inside, very creative. I like the handles too, gives the bowl a more rustic look. Great job!

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

There has been an inrush of different turning techniques here on the forum lately and they are all fantastic. I love all of them and this project of your is no exception. It's a real inspiration to see skill like this. Great work. Thanks for sharing this one. I love it. (If you ever do another one, I would love to see a photo spread of the progress pictures)

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Great craftsmanship!

I really enjoy the "different" stuff.

I'm more likely to turn something funky, than to turn a basic bowl...
(though my last 5-6 efforts have been basic bowls.)

Thanks for sharing,

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

John,
That's pretty wild. I like the texturing, goes well on the walnut. I was wondering too what you used to do it. Are the feet glued on? Did you start the handles with a rim and then cut most of it away?
As old Arty Johnson used to say on Laugh In, "Vedddddy interesting..."

Your too old if you remember Arte Johnson. You probably fell in love with Goldie Hawn as well. I used the middle of the 3 Dremel ball cutters and just touched the bowl a gazillion times with it. It took 2 hours.
To get the feet I left a ring around the bottom as tall as the feet. Then just carved away all but the feet. Same with the rim.

John that is really striking! I love the way the texture drips into the bowl, that is just awesome.

I remember Arte Johnson and I'm not old, Oh heck maybe I am old!
I was pretty young watching Laugh In, young enough I didn't realize why my Dad was watching, I just thought he liked the comedy.

John

I was watching short reruns of laugh in on youtube the other day. I had forgotten how skimpy the girls outfits were. I was probably around 16 then so I was ready to watch that.

Really cool bowl!

My 3 year old took one look and said, "Where is that piggy's face???" It does look like you could make a lid with a snout for it.

Very cool bowl, and I'm just as impressed with the picture. I'd like to hear about your photo setup if it's not too far off topic.

I like the texture, just me, I would have left the inside smooth and textured the outside, but then again, I didn't build it. nice work though

Bonanza or anyone else for that matter. If you will send an e-mail to [email protected] I will send you a PDF on my photo set up. Well not the one I use to shoot this, that is about $20,000. The one I use at home which is about $100 or less and I can do the same quality photo. It does take more work and skill with my home set up but anyone can learn to get a decent photo with this set up. It will take some practice but I'm here answer questions.
