Natural Edge Black Locust Bowl – January 2015

Black Locust Natural Edge Bowl - January 2015
This Black Locust Natural Edge Bowl is the first piece I have ever turned from Black Locust. It has a very unique feel, even though there is a large hollow space filled with carpenter ant tunnels, it is still quite heavy. My daughter described the finish as "Silky" and said she liked rubbing it on her face because it felt good. I guess that is a good thing? It weighs in at a little over 3 lbs.
Available Qty: 1

The following images were taken as the bowl is being made.  Notice the bottom was completed first, and an initial finish was applied.  The dovetail recess was turned to allow the chuck on the lathe to hold the piece for finish turning the inside of the bowl.
