I’ve done larger glue-up pieces before but this is the largest “wet” piece of wood I’ve done so far, primarily because I haven’t had any stock this size before. Log is maple. Boy, is this a lot of work!!!
Learned quite a bit off this first piece about using a chainsaw and bandsaw to create a balanced blank. Thinking I might get around 15 or so bowls out of this log. First one is 10.5”D x 5.5”H x 5” deep. Used a bowl gouge without getting any catches so I’m pretty pumped about that.
