This was only the second bowl I have attempted to turn – from a much better choice of wood that the first. Came from a dying Red Bud we cut down at my father in law’s several weeks ago. I thought the blank would yield an interesting pattern from the fork – and I was right. Just hope it doesn’t completely come apart. Certainly won’t hold any liquid! It won’t win any awards but I am pleased with it, and it was good practice.

Pretty cool. It’ll be interesting to see how it holds up.
