Took day off from installing my ducting for my Dust Collection System. Awaiting few missing parts. So decided to make some live edge bowls and thin plate. 3 walnut and a cedar burl. Good to make some saw dust Looks it’s time for a big get lathe. .. Cheers

Sorry I turned the last 2 pics twice before putting them on here and this Web page turned them back sidways. And hints? Thx.

If you’re taking them with a phone hold it horizontally (wide). Never had an issue when I do that.

Thx for all the comments.

Yea I’ve always used my phone but have been able to edit them once on my tablet or laptop. But they seem to go back to original once placed on here. This doesn’t happen when I put them on Facebook . Guess I can’t turn my phone for pics going on here. Thx

Gotta ask Ken,
What finish/technique did you use?
That wood grain pops especially against the live edge.
Thanks
Jon
