Very very nice, and great finish too. Just one small suggestion (only my opinion) the shape would look even nicer if the curve on the outside stayed within the confines defined by the rim. That is to say, it would be more pleasing if the curved bottom was narrower than the lip, or flowed to a point closer to the center of the bowl.
yep , nice bowls indeed :thumbsup:
Rich look to the wood , good figure in the grain , well finished .
Fine profile too .
And by the look of the overhead photos, the rims are the widest point of the design , giving the works a classical look .
I roughed out a wet silver birch blank many years ago and was rather pleased with the result ,
until one of the guild members remarked that all the chamber pot needed now was the handle :blink:
Great bowls! :thumbsup::thumbsup:
Grain pattern is great too!
what size? (not that it matters that much)
I try to shape mine so it accentuates the grain----let the blank dictate the final shape ( use the force).
