Beech bowl turned green. Large bowl is 16 inches across, was able to hold the bark on. The two smaller bowls I was unable to hold bark on the one, too much movement in drying Family here at the house the past 10 days and have done no turning

I love em.


-- 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.

Beautiful bowls Ron. I guess you are having turning withdrawal pains during your absence from your shop. It’s always good to take a little break once in awhile.

Nice bowls , Ron.
Is that a clear finish? I’m interested in the colour because I’ve just started to carve a pair of boots out of beech. Hope I can get the same colour as the bowls.
