YouTuber, woodworker, and woodturner Frank Howarth shows how he added spikes to a wooden cherry bowl.
"I have had spikes on my mind," Howarth writes. "I added spikes to a monolithic cherry bowl rough that I turned 2 years ago. In this project, I turned the inside of the bowl to a finished round shape and sanded it to 600 grit to make a polished wooden surface. I then attached walnut blocks to the outside of this cherry rough. I hand-carved the outside of the bowl with a hand grinder with a carving attachment.
"I formed the walnut blocks into the spikes creating a bowl with a more free-formed spiky outside and a turned, very smooth, very geometric inside. I think it looks a little like a sea creature."
Howarth, whose YouTube channel has more than 580,000 subscribers, describes his work as "architecture at a small scale expressed through woodworking and film making."
Howarth is the creator of the wooden Death Star.
