Making a Walnut Bowl

Two years ago, I cut up a black walnut log into slabs with my friend Gabe. We cut up part of the tree into smaller chunks that I made into bowl blanks. Those blanks are now dry. I have turned one of them into a finished piece. The bowl blank I chose to use for this project had a big hole in it and had cracked. I cut out the defects and made a striped pattern wood piece to replace the parts of the bowl that I removed. I then turned the glued up new and old pieces into a finished bowl and gave it to Gabe as a gift.

  1. Amazing work Frank. I'm sure you can relate when I say that I got so much more out of gifting my turnings than selling them.
    You inspired me to start wood turning 4 years ago. I owe a lot to you for sharing your talents. I hope one day to meet you and shake your hand.
