You’d think I’d get tired of making bowls, but I find it very relaxing. I was heating the barn for the first time this year and I found this 4” thick walnut round in the burn barrel that had this deep crack in it. I gave up on it last year and now thought it is too nice to burn so I whittled off most of the crack and this what evolved. I had to search around for a small diameter bowl to fit the area I allowed in the center. I found a pack of 4 Anchor Hocking bowls at Big Lots that fit perfect..

It is a walnut and 7 3/4” diameter and 2 3/4” high with some of the crack remaining that is filled with turquoise inlay. It is finished with Danish Oil and buffed and waxed.

cheers, Jim

Nice save, I tend to feel less guilt if I cut up cracked wood into pen planks:)

You’ll never get tired of making great things Jim.

You were lucky finding the glass bowls with shortages on so many things.

Bob appetite!

Thanks for all the nice comments on this little bowl. It almost was ashes.

Hi Tony. I hate to say it but yesterday I burned a big piece of sycamore that cracked and I have burners remorse. There are 3 more pieces of the big cracked log and I may save them. I have two rattles to make and there is enough in one piece to make 5 of them.

Hi James. I always need something to make…yesterday it was an aluminum choke lever for my weed wacker that got lost after I loaned it out plus a back scratcher for McKinlee!

Cheers, Jim

Hi Tony. My cutoff barrel in the shop supplies a fair amount of wood for the wood burner. No coal around here…...........Cheers, Jim

Ha ha, everytime I want to thin out my scraps to the fire, I get to looking at each piece and see there are still projects there…Then I shove them back in the corner, no smaller…Except the piece I pulled out and used…lol…

Great bowl combo, always a favorite…Well done…
