I had some small logs of Chinese Elm that a Neighbour gave me when they had a Chinese Elm Tree cut down. The wood had sat in my rack for nearly two years and I was keen to make something from it. I don’t know whether to call it a Vase or a Bowl but I think Vase sounds OK.
From Lip to Foot it is 5 inches (12.5 cm) in Height. 5 3/4 inches (14.5 cm) Diameter across the outside Lip and 3 inches ( 7.5 cm) deep. After sanding it is finished with 6 coats of Danish Oil also sanded between the first 3 coats. I like Danish Oil as it is very easy to apply but I think it would be good to have a go at using Wood Turning polishes and Wax after having observed the beautiful finishes that other Lumber Jocks have achieved on their projects.
Kind regards to all Lumber Jocks.
