More of Joe's bowls

here are 4 more. I have about 7 or 8 more to do. The smallest one is about 4 1/2" and is cedar. The rest are cherry with the largest being about 8" wide.

I really like them also. Is that some type of beading on the second one? Do you use any particular rule-of-thumb as diameter of the foot to the bowl?
They would look good just sitting out but they really make you want to grab one, use it, and enjoy it.

The second one had a worm hole right at the edge of the lip. I could have shortened it by 3/16" and started to do that but first I turned a 45 degree chamfer to get rid of the worm hole. Then I thought it might be fun to burn little dots all around the edge so that's what I did.
I don't really turn all that many bowls so I don't have a rule of foot vs lip. I usually just do it one of two ways. One is, if it's a functional bowl I make the foot large enough to make it stable. If it's more decorative then I make the foot considerably smaller. I usually just try and make the foot so it doesn't interfere with flow of the curve of the bowl. I left these very much the shape that my friend Joe turned them originally. Consequently some of the shapes and feet are different than I might. If you look at the 3rd bowl from the left you'll see that the shape end kind of bluntly at the foot. I prefer them to be more like the first bowl on the left.

Nice bowls.

Typical foot ratio is about 1/3. Like John said though if it is to be used, a wider more stable foot should be used.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Those look fantastic. Great job on all of them.

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

Each one slightly different - but it's clear they are related; more in common than they have in differences, not least among the shared traits are the eye and craftsmanship of the maker. Very nice.

These were all finished with Mahoney's walnut oil. I'm still learning to use it but I like it. I may need to sand higher than 600 grit. The feel incredibly smooth and I can get more shine by using more than 2 coats but I'd like to see what happens if I sand to a higher grit. I'll do that on the next 2.
