While loading firewood for the furnace, I picked up another branch of locust off the firewood pile and tried some different shapes of the banana style bowls. There was a crotch on the end of the branch so I just had to make one out of that to see what the feather inside would look like. I thought a place for a tea light might look nice to so I made one like that with then natural edge all around it.
Of course I had to have the banana in there for Bambi!

They are finished with satin lacquer.

Cheers, Jim

Isn’t amazing what you can make out of a scoungy bit of wood.
They are really pretty, especially the crotch piece.

Cool looking pieces, Jim . Those look like they could be a little intimidating to turn.

Thanks for all the nice comments. These are fun but sound like propellers at 1600 rpm. All sanding is done off the lathe for obvious reasons.

Hi Patti. Glad you made it okay. thanks for hauling the router table parts for me. I’ll assemble in it January.

Hi Bob, I love the pattern from the crotch piece the best. It is nice to have a big contrast in the heart wood and sap wood to make it stand out like that.

Hi Bambi. I look at these logs in a different way since I saw your banana bowl!! It is so much fun turning a green piece this way. I don’t think I’d like it if it were dry.

cheers, Jim

Nice work Jim. Hats off for that winged tea light holder. That is really outstanding. These type of bowls should be a big hit in Arizona. They will act like a fan and keep you cool as you turn. I only did one winged turning before, time for a few more. I picked up 8 big locust logs 3 weeks ago. Cut some into boards and the rest will be turned.

Awesome!

The bark on that locust log looks like it was really stuck on tight!
