The first bowls from the walnut tree on Ryan's mountain property.
Oh boy, this is nice stuff. The center cut slabs are around 12" wide with about 2" of white sap wood. These two(7x7x2) were cut from a 16" long log. The next bowl should be a beauty having a continuous white band around the top perimeter.

This piece is actually a knot from the outer portion of the tree. It was deemed large enough to carve a small bowl from(6x4x1.5). Pieces like this are always a joy to make. The excitement of what the finished product will look like grows with anticipation through the stages of completion.
