Thread: First winged bowl?

    First winged bowl?

    Can this be considered a winged bowl? It was a little scary getting the wings turned down, so I didn't get the wings very flat. This was made from the rest of the log from the bowl I posted last week here:

    It's about 3inches high and 8" from tip to tip. Still don't know what type of wood it is. Critiques wanted.

    Looks great Jeff.

    I really like the spiral effect from the top view.

    Usually I would say that the huge difference in the size of the wing from the edge to near the bowl portion is a problem. Also the edge of the bowl portion seems really rounded over.

    However with the gnarled aged look of the wood I kind of like it on this piece. It gives it the appearance that this could have been on a frontier home's coffee table (did they have coffee tables?). A very rustic and interesting looking piece.

    Rustic....I like that

    I now have a new way of making my turnings look better. They are rustic, it has nothing to do with lack of turning ability!! Thanks for that Mike!

    Very nice, you are fortunate it did not come apart on you.the rustic look is great I tried that with some drift wood but the internal cracks let it come apart before getting the shape done . nice work
