Birch Bowl
« on: March 06, 2012, 12:07:09 PM »
I got round to doing a bit more work on my latest Birch Bowl this afternoon,





There is still a fair deal of work to do on it, especially on the side walls as they are a little heavy in places and maybe tomorrow I'll get the crook knives out and refine it and take the thickness down in places so i have a fairly uniform thickness throughout, so far the checks and cracks i mentioned before seem to have stabilised and fingers crossed, are not proving to be too much of a problem.

Lookin good.  I hope it doesn't crack anymore on you.  Should be a cool user once it's done.

Did a bit more on it today, not entirely happy with it if im honest, bit thick in places, but if i do much more on it, i just know i'll stuff it up completely







The only i might do is to refines the tooling marks in the bowl itself as some of them are more akin to mountain ridges at present

All with a crooked knife or did you use a gouge or small adze? Very nice work, Kep (as always)!

I like the rectangular "lozenge" shape of it. Looks nice!
