I made my first trip this season year to Dead Tree Salvage in Casa Grande to see John Goodwin’s new Electric Woodmizer saw mill and picked up this piece of very dry pistachio crotch wood . It was very hard and required a lot of sharpening but I finally finished it.

It is 6 1/2” and 3” high and finished with Danish Oil and 3 stage buff and wax.

Cheers, Jim

Really nice, bowl Jim. Pistachio is sure pretty. What’s that blue stuff? Hee hee.
Glad John got his saw finally. Pickens were slim earlier.
BIL, in Illinois is just starting to turn. In Nov, we took him a load of mesquite and pistachio…male and female and, some crotches. Haven’t heard about his experiences with either. We came back with a full load of Illinois black walnut, maple and cherry. It’s drying now. By next fall, it’ll be ready. The wettest was 16%.

That is quite attractive. Great looking wood and a nice style on the shape of the bowl.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Wonderful bowl as always. How did you like John Goodwins’s electric Woodmizer?
Does it have enough power? What voltage was it?

Nice bowl Jim. I think you love going to Arizona just for the Pistachio.

No time for a breather before heading into the shop?

Love the look! Nice addition of the base ring (to keep it sitting flat I assume?)

That’s a very beautiful turning Jim and you used just the right shape to get the most out of the crotch piece.
