Walnut Wood Bowl Woodturning

Having some creative fun with this piece of salvaged walnut. The wood came from a tree in Texas where I lived some years ago. The tree blew down in a storm. I and others salvaged the walnut wood to do some woodturning and make some nice wooden bowls.

Please comment on the bowl and/or any techniques. Since I’m not a professional, I will appreciate any and all tips and suggestions. Just don’t call me names. :)

It’s your turn. Be safe and Have Fun

        great video camera work I cant understand why you dont make the foot while the bowl is on the screw as i do then turn bowl over and hold on foot either expand or contract grip.you have some very good tool control and very sharp tools i cant sharpen really well and ive spent a lot of money on grinding gigs keep them coming tks for posting

          Not sure I have a great answer. Probably the best one is that I’m not confident in the shape of the foot at that point. It would save another mount but that’s no good if it needs to change.
          Very good question – Makes me wonder.

      I currently use 2 Canon Vixia video cameras. At times, I’ve used a Kodak ZI-8 video camera for the second camera.
      You’re welcome.
