Carved black locust bowl

This bowl took me several years to make. I’d work on it for a while, then set it aside, then work on it, then set it aside. Since I never made much progress I never really took pictures of it, and then all of a sudden last Christmas it was done.

This is a bowl made from a crotch of black locust wood I picked up from someone on Craigslist.

It was carved out partly with forstner bits and partly by hand. The bark stayed on very nicely throughout the whole ordeal and the bottom didn’t show any real signs of cracking.

I sealed it with danish oil and gave it to my sister for Christmas last year where it has faithfully stored all the role playing game dice.
