I pulled out a few blanks I roughed out last summer and finished them up.

The first one is mesquite. It's about 9"x4".

The next one is river birch I got from a firewood dealer. It's about 8"x3.5"

This one was a piece of elm from a neighbors tree. I decided to make it three footed since the wood seams to move a lot. All three are finished with mineral oil and beeswax. Thanks for looking.

There is one of the inside and the foot. I'm starting to make them with a more open form top. Then I undercut the inside to make a nice shadow line. Thanks for your comments.

Pretty much. I left a big ring on the bottom, then cut away most of the waste with a coping saw. After that it is sharp chisel and sandpaper work.

I like'em all!
Have thought about doing the footed thing a couple of times. Prolly will think it through again and try it too. I think you're right about the elm--it does move some.

Nice work there ETJ.
I like the color and grain of the mesquite bowl best, but I also like the feet on the other bowl.
