The first one is a fractal burned salsa bowl made from a piece of mesquite with a glass microwaveable bowl in the center. It is 12” diameter and is finished with Danish oil and then buffed and waxed on the outside and the inside is finished with Behandla kitchen utensil finish.

The second piece is a gift for Dave Morse of the Morse saw mill . Mr Morse gave me a piece of cherry slab wood when we visited him last week and he had never heard of Fractal burning. So I’m taking this piece to him tomorrow when we make another visit. It is finished with clear shellac.

Cheers, Jim

salsa bowl is dynamite and the slab end is a tree in the woods ? both are nice examples of planning

Both pieces look great Jim. Now I’m interested in hearing what Dave Morse thinks of his beautiful gift.

Thank you all for the nice comments. Glad you like these things! I sold salsa bowl #1 and need another for the show on the 12th. The photo of the flames coming off of it sold the other one!!

Hi Pattie. Doug and I are going over to Dave’s on Saturday to see his Legacy machine and I’ll give him this then. I also may buy that 6 cylinder head he has upstairs. Have a safe trip to Texas…you’ll have to buy some boots when you get there( if you don’t already have them)

Hi John, I’ll take a picture of Dave with his slab when I go there tomorrow.

cheers, Jim
