Hello friends. The day before my daughter’s birthday, and I decided to give her a present, it’s a bowl for candy in the form of a flower. It is made of Gleditsia and has 180mm in diameter. In the end, I covered it with oil. Here is a link to the video work.

Very nice. I’m sure you daughter will treasure it her whole life.

I was curious about Gleditsia and found that in the USA it is commonly called Honey Locust (Gleditisia Triacanthose L.) It is not grown in the area I live in, the Pacific Northwest.

That is a real neat bowl. You are really good with the turning and the carving. That will be a great gift!!

Cheers, Jim

Very pretty. unique design!

I like that it is not a clone of many others.

There is a little, quite scarce though; honey locust that grows here in Oregon. Here is a link to a project made from Oregon grown honey locust. We were not sure and had a sample confirmed by the people at Rockler.
