excellent for a smaller fruit bowl or garlic bowl
finished w/ food-grade walnut oil
made by Zach LaPerriere
Sitka, Alaska 2017
bowl measures 7 1/2" X 2 3/4"
The woodturner who is given a whole tree has an infinite number of choices in how to lay out where the finished bowl will go.
When you consider that the finished bowl is only a few percent of the rough tree, you realize that the turner is responsible for what part of the tree that you see.
If you look in the interior of this bowl you'll see that I did a pretty good job balancing the orientation of the grain. I like that balance between the two sides of a bowl. I joke that I pay attention to this sort of thing because I have a short attention span. Or maybe I'm just daydreaming while I turn.
I hope you enjoy the balance, too.
