Hello . I present to you my new project. It’s a bowl o Gleditsia . , Gleditsia – a relative of the acacias. I worked with this material for the first time. Gleditsia is very good in processing. Even though it is moist, it is highly polished. The walls of the bowl, which I made only 3 mm, on this cup are very beautiful when it hits the light. Who are interested in the manufacturing process, click on the link.

Took a lot of skill to get it that thin without blowing out the side. Excellent job.

Very interesting wood grain and the bowl shape is excellent. I am still learning so I can appreciate the thin walls! Had to watch the video (even though I couldn’t understand a word of it!!!). Thanks for sharing!
