A couple of natural edge bowls. The large bowl did not move much and the bark stayed in place with some CA. The small bowl had a great deal of movement and I could not hold the bark on. Large bowl around 8 inches and smaller around 4

Ron, those are beautiful, simply elegant.



-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Very nicely done Ron. I have turned a few natural edged bowls and I’m always amazed that they are so stable.

Yes these were done wet to finish. I let them sit in a plastic bag for days turning the bag inside out and the moisture out a little at a time.
