Black Walnut Bowl

img_0682

While not as big as Der Mollenhauer’s bowl, this large bowl will still hold a lot of fruit or bread.  It’s 20 3/4″ long, 12 1/4″ wide, and 4 1/4″ high and carved from a lovely black walnut log.

I decided on a delicate necklace of small nail cuts around the rim.  I think they were just enough to enhance the form a bit while letting the wood speak.

I carved the underside in four curving panels that meet in ridge lines that flow from the corners of the handles to the corners of the bottom.
