I got three burr elm blanks as a birthday gift from my girlfriend yesterday, so I turned one just now and this was the outcome. I do not have a chuck so I used a faceplate to turn the bowl. The finish was polyurethane on the outside and danish oil on the inside. I used the least ‘pippy’ blank as a practice so I did not waste any of the really figured pieces.
