Walnut Sculpted Bowl
Woodworker: Bryan KlotzBecause he finds end grain to be the most striking part of any wood, Klotz, 29, tried to pack as much of it as possible into this maple and walnut sculpted bowl. He experimented until he landed on the final brick pattern. And he was as innovative with his techniques as he was with the design. Not having a lathe, he shaped the piece entirely with a tablesaw. He used different coving setups to shape the outside, and a jig that spins to help carve out the inside. The sculpture is 13 in. deep by 15 in. wide by 6-1/2-in. tall, and it took approximately 20 hours to complete.
