I hand carved this bowl using a mallet and a set of mallet gouges along with alot of hand sanding. The process was time consuming considering cherry is a relativly hard wood. Hope you enjoy it as much as i enjoyed making it.
This black cherry bowl utilized sap and heart wood to give a nice contrast between light and dark grain. The flutes are in a spiral pattern that get smaller as they get closer to the foot of the bowl. The inside of the bowl is smooth so it can be used as a functional bowl if desired. The bowl dimensions are 11 inches diameter and 5 inches tall.
