Porridge Bowl


One sure way to find out all the cracks and flaws hiding inside a piece of wood is to put it on a lathe and try to make something nice out of it.

This piece of oak looked fine from the outside, but once the outside was gone, all of its cracks and things became glaring plain. Hey-ho, never mind.

The shape of this bowl is based more or less on a porridge bowl I had as a child. It flares out towards its flat base, so that it's harder for a toddler to up-end and get porridge all over everything.

The piece is 170mm in diameter by 45mm tall.
