Thank You for looking at my latest project. The is a large (13” dia x 14” tall) Natural Edge Maple Burl Bowl. The bowl is being donated to the Hope4Ella auction later this month. Ella Stewart is a sweet, brave little girl that battling a serious illness. I have worked with her mom for several years at the Auto dealership, and this is my contibution to help them out. Anybody interested can contact Debra Stewart at Hansel Ford Lincoln Mercury (707) 543-7300.

Beautiful turning FordMike. I love live edge bowls when they’re done right like this.
Healing wishes and positive thoughts for Ella’s recovery and beating her illness.

Great piece Mike! I was looking at your other projects also and you sure know how to turn a sows ear into a silk purse. Really love the organic nature of your work. I also send my best wishes for Ella’s recovery.
