This is a Box Elder burl saturn bowl that I finished this weekend. The bowl is 2” deep the wing is 10” across and 1/16” thick. As you can see the wing moved a little bit on me because of how thin it is. This burl was very dry when I was cutting it. Finished with multiple coats of wipe on poly then waxed and buffed. All comments and questions welcome, and please visit my website at to see more of my work.

Ya Bibbs I was afraid to sneeze while making the final cuts. Are you still here or did you make it down South?

More beautiful work Michael, this is very thin indeed bet it sounded great running at speed,
your cover shot reminds of a crater on the moon.
Very nice
