This is the bench during bowl turning back in July of 2013! The below bowl is actually still in log form in this picture. There, covered in shavings….

I had to wait several months for the rough turned bowl to dry out. I finally finished it last weekend. The bowl came to about 6” across and 2” deep

It’s from a crotch, or where two branches meet. You tend to get very interesting grain in that region.

Some of the outer bark is still on this bowl. I think it give it character. “If it don’t hold soup, it’s art!”
