This is a bowl I have been working on off and on and decided to put an end to it! It is made from crotch of a cherry tree and it was covered with this white stuff all over the bark so I stripped the bark off in the raw area and that is what is left of the natural edge. It is 8 1/2” x 3 1/2” high. It was a challenge to hold since the spigot was not all the way around in the chuck. I threw it out once into the curtain behind the lathe and it landed in the boat behind the curtain. That was the only time I drew blood in the lathe. It whipped the gouge into my finger ...I think. It was a blur! It makes you respect an open piece like that.
The outside is buffed and waxed and the inside is lacquered and waxed.
