Spalted Live Oak Natural Edge Bowl – February 2015

Here is a video of the bowl as I am hollowing out the inside.  This piece comes with a special surprise, watch the video to see what it is.

Spalted Live Oak Natural Edge Bowl - February 2015
This Spalted Live Oak Natural Edge Bowl measures 9 ¼" in diameter, 5" from table top to highest point on rim, and weighs around 1 ½ lbs. I had no idea this piece of wood had this much character before mounting it on the lathe, it looked like many of the other blanks I have lying around. The happy surprise came when I formed the inside and discovered the beautiful grain within.

The images below were taken as the bowl was rough turned and removed for drying before final turning.

  1. I see your post is several years behind, sincerely hope all is well.
    I encourage you, if you have not already, to enter your wood skills on local art festivals. The juried ones. Not the craft shows. I believe that you have s genuine talent that deserves recognition. I have seen bowls that were no where near as beautiful as yours sell for three to four times what you ask. Do some research and consider it.

    If you restock your store, please let me know.

    Most sincerely,

    1. Hello Tammy and thanks for the comment. I have recently purchased another lathe and plan to slowly get back into turning. An unexpected career change took the wind out of my sails for a while but I am looking forward to making some chips fly. I will be posting on this site when I have the lathe going again, so hold on it is coming.
