This natural edge bowl is 6” in diameter and 3” tall.

The walls are about 3/8” thick, which is thicker than I like but I didn’t want to lose the bark!

I’m not sure of the species (I picked it up at a club raffle).

... did you use any CA ?

Yes … thin CA at first until I got it down to the shape and thickness, then mixed up some epoxy. Took a little longer due to cure time, but I think it was worth it.

Every cut is a practice cut. If you aim for perfection, you’ll hit excellence along the way!
