Wow. That's really nice. I've never tried a natural edge bowl. I love the look of the wood. It's so clean that it almost looks fake. Great job. Keep posting

Man that's nice. Your surface looks perfect. What did you use to hollow it? I would have tool marks all through that thing.

Neb

This is also a NEB that I turned a while back. It is entirely translucent except along the end where the bark is. If I tried to make it 1/32" thick like the rest of the bowl it would surely break. I made a bunch of these NEB at one time. Jeff yours is very nice, you did a great job. Keep making them. Mitch

Jeff, that is really nice. The ultra clean finish and subtle grain is a nice contrast to the natural edge and the bark. I also like the form, it looks great on this bowl. Thanks for posting.

Mitch, your bowl looks very nice also. I really like the color of the wood against the black base.

Thanks guys for your comments and showing your NEBs hope to see more.

Rightuppercut did it with my Sorby 1/2 bowl gouge and round nose scraper but i have seen your work up close, who are you kidding with the tool marks...lol ...we will have to get together a share turning techniques.

Mitch & Tim your bowls look great, thanks for sharing.

Jeff,
