These 2 Cherry natural edge bowls were cut from the same log. They are each about 5 1/4” long, 4 1/4” across, and 2 1/4” high.

I was experimenting with ‘balancing’ the log on the lathe … I like the form on the right side in the first picture much better than the one on the left.

Finish is 4 coats of Danish Oil.

Beautiful bowls Mr. Gerry. I love how you kept the live edge on them. And the subtleness of the finish didn’t take away from the wood at all. Great work

Lovely work Gerry. I like the grain pattern inside the bowls. Were these turned green, or had you allowed some time for seasoning before you started turning?

They were pretty dry … didn’t check the moisture content, but there is no warping.
