That's what I call beautiful. Not a lot of people can see something like this coming from a piece of burned wood. What's that old saying? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Thanks. Craigo, it is pretty new. Got it back in Early February :) My only regret is not going all the way and getting a 600+ series. Love the saw though.

Great bowl. So glad you posted the 1st picture. The bowl really reveals what its source is…like looking at the stump or log for the first time. Cool.

Thanks guys. Thedude50: I was told it was blown down a year or so ago in a bad storm/tornado. She thought the log was still "ok" but turns out it got pushed up in a brush pile and lit on fire. The outer two inches were badly checked but there was still some decent wood inside. I think the fire had made it rather brittle and chip prone however.

Nice bowl! I find it very amusing to see what can be made from a log.

I think if it is Chestnut that it's probably Chinese or European chestnut a much smaller version of the tree. American chestnut is endangered and there are several Universities that are attempting to develop a tree that is resistant to the Chinese plight that almost destroyed every tree in the US. Check out http://www.acf.org/ for more information. Cheers

I dont think that is asian chestnut the grain says american chestnut all the way. I am activley trying to help restore the groves in california where thye blight did not kill off as many trees they use the trees that survived to help develop resistant strains we need to kill off the mold which is tough to do. Please do a lot of reading on the mighty chestnuts the largest hard wood trees in america. They wii be Back and if you all help maybe in our lifetime we can save them
