Rustic Black Walnut Bowl

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Rustic Black Walnut BowlWell, this morning I was finally able to go pick up the black walnut blanks. After the gym, I had some free time, so I wanted to give the prototype a go.I mainly worked with my grinder and palm sander, but I did need to use a paddle bit to get the declivity started.I'm not all that taken with the wood grain. I kinda hope the little cracks keep spider webbing from the bottom and top to give this a little more character. Obviously I like the black center. I'm really glad I kept the live edge around the top.I sent pics off to the wine shop owner who is going to forward them to his friend. If I get approval, I then have three more to make. Kinda boring, but it's a guaranteed sale.The bowl is around 10 inches in diameter. It's finished in wipe-on poly.Figured I'd share it with you all… see what you think.

Exotic wood cutting boardsFour thick cutting boards made from kits from woodcraft. Glued two cutting boards at the same time in my set of pipe clamps with some scrap wood cauls covered in packing tape to keep the glue from sticking to them.Sanded to 220 grit, sprayed with water to raise the grain, then sanded to 400 grit. Rounded the edge with a small round over bit and hand sanded the edges to smooth them out. Applied 2 coats of walrus oil about 24 hours apart followed by a coat of walrus oil board wax.
