Pretty cool.
I like the first pic with half the bark still on the bowl, its amazing how much darker the wood is from the bark.
Good job.. how are you finishing your work?

Thanks MrWolfe! This is finished with a couple coats of shellac.

Appreciate it Pottz. I am pretty new at this as well. But I had an excellent teacher.
I’m glad I found this forum it has been very helpful.
I’ll be putting a few other projects up this week. Hope you all like them.

It looks very nice.
Did you turn it “green” or did you let it dry first? Centered end grain turnings are almost always susceptible to splitting is the main reason I ask.

LesB it was green. I use paper grocery bags double them up and let them sit. Seems to be working well.
