Black Walnut Bowl


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.

    Looks great!!! Who would have ever thought to use the thumb nail cut on that pattern around the rim. That pattern really looks nice.
