Fluted Bradford Pear Bowl

I finally finish another piece. I am perfecting my ablities to do fluted and ornamental work on my woodturnings. Part of this is developing the tools that I have to have in order to do this kind of work. So the fluted work is pretty simple right now until I perfect the tools I need. This is one thing that can't be bought ready to use. I have to modify the tools I used for this work.

This is a fluted bowl made from Bradford Pear. Although the fluted work is not terribly complicated I am learning how to do more complicated work using this technique through trial and error. Unfortunely it does involve a lot of trials and lots of errors. This Bowl did turn out kinded nice I think.
