Here are a few of the cherry burl bowls I have made out of the blanks I previously posted. The first two and the last pictures are all the dry bowls, while the third and fourth were just rough turned. The last picture was of a small burl candy bowl I turned. This was my first experience working with a burl and wanted to do something smaller and lighten than a big bowl blank. The first picture was of the very first burl bowl that I made. I have about 16 burls drying right now in a bag, which I plan on selling before christmas. Burls are always super fun to work with because like most wood, you never know what kind of grain your going to get until you cut into it. I’m still trying to figure out how to work with the bark that has rotted due to insect infestation. As far as the wood goes, I haven’t had any problems with rot.
By the way, I know that looks like a pipe, but its supposed to be a small sugar scoop out of some leftover cherry I had.
