This is a nice cherry burl bowl I turned. It includes a natural edge with lots of bark still intact. There is even some moss still clinging to the outside. This bowl is finished with shellac and then Danish oil.

This is my first project in my “Logs to bowls” series.

Looks very nice. I like it! The contrast between the rough and smooth and the natural opposed to the refined.

Neat! and the moss (and bark for that matter) stayed on!
