Serial 22056 Model BWNO0804 Walnut natural edge bowl

This is made from a branch about 5" diameter cut while dormant. The bowl is about 8" x 4" x 4" high.
Really nice form. But I prefer a way smaller bottom. And if it is that big, I would "roll it" I just take a little of the edge so it doesn't look so flat sitting on the surface. Rolling it helps lift the form a bit.

The tenon on this piece was 2" and when removing it I had considered cutting the base down but but the bowl was distorted to the point that it may have destroyed the piece to rework it at that time.

C'mon, Don! With your experience we all know you can do it. :)
