I lost allot of trees (14) during hurricane Sandy, I let a few logs sit and spalt for a year and roughed out some bowls. As you can see I used a Tap to make a threaded block to glue to the bottoms, I have since purchased a chuck from Penn State and now make a lug on the bottom to attached to. These bowls are Oak (most of the trees that fell we oak, great for fire wood). I have a few maple logs spalting now for use in the spring. I finished these with carbide lathe tools of my own making.

Very pretty.

Nice bowls. When I saw the small bowl, the coloration reminded me of iconic pictures of Vlad, the Impaler; but that might just be me.

Hey Gary, I have been to Vlads castle in Brasove Romania. Brasove is beautiful town, but interestingly they make no mention of him in the Castle, only an heiress that lived there in the the 1920’s. Outside the Castle grounds they sell every Vlad trinket you can imagine.

Fort Salonga Long Island, I have 3 acres and about 1000 oak trees (well 1000-14). I have cut and split most of it, but haven’t finished it up after 2 years (unbelievably not rotted yet). I am going to cut some up with an Alaska saw mill I purchased a Harbor Freight, Might try this weekend if the weather holds out

I didn’t know HF has an Alaskan saw mill. Cool.
I’m right down the road in Nesconset.

I don’t think HF has the Alaska Saw mill anymore. I used it this weekend, cut 5 – 6’ long 16” wide oak planks. worked pretty good.
