 This was a very challenging piece to hollow.  It is held together by only a few inches of wood toward the bottom. I was both excited and surprised with it’s successful completion.

 This walnut platter is about 15” in diameter. It was such a beautiful piece of wood but as I started to turn it I noticed some soft spots which were going to come out. I was able to fill the voids with epoxy and save the piece. The voids make a nice contrast for the eye.

 I have made a lot of salad bowls over the years. I try to find interesting wood to make the bowl beautiful. My standard salad bowl is about 13” in diameter and 8” deep. While this seems to be the favorite size they can be made to your specification.  This bowl is made from figured claro walnut.   Photo: Pf Woodworking
