This is my first attempt at a bowl turning. The Cherry was provided by my son, who had cut it about 15 months ago and then sealed the ends. Brian turned his first ever bowl also out of this same log blank, so we actually have side by side bowls for our first turnings each! His is round and mine is Oooooooooval he wound up with approx. 9 7/8” x 3 1/2” and mine is approx. 10 1/2”x8 1/2”x3 1/2”. We figure that for the Cherry to completely dry out we’ll need to wait another 8 to 10 years for this to occur! Lots of fun though, we’d never turned any green wood before.
