It’s been a while since I’ve posted pictures so I thought it was time!!
The wood used to make this bowl came from a friends yard. The tree had died and I cut it down and cleaned up the yard in exchange for the wood. I think it was worth it. I have several more bowls made from the same tree.

The worm holes are definitely not good for the tree but sure adds character to the bowl!!
This bowl has several coats of Wood Turners Finish applied to it.
