These are 2 bowls I did as demos in the turning classes at East Kentwood High school . They were both examples of natural edge turning. The left one is green mulberry burl and the right one is dry mesquite. The left one is finished with Danish oil and the right one is finished with clear matte spray that builds up to a sheen with several coats.
I was given a fresh cut branch of mulberry with a burl on it from Kyle, the building class instructor, to see what I could make out of it. He will get this bowl this week. The other bowl I’ll give to the most ambitious turner in the class.. a fellow without a hand on his right arm. I am truly amazed at this guy. I’ll bet he would turn wood all day given the time!!
