These are made from some old logs I found. I think some is ash or white oak and some is maple, but I’m just guessing. Anyway, here’s what I’ve made so far, which I’ll give away as Christmas gifts.

The large bowl is about 10” wide and 3-1/2 tall, the natural edge bowl is about 8” wide by 5” tall (highest point), and the tall vase and long stem goblet are each about 9” tall—all outside dimensions.

They are all finished with shellac, some with shine juice.

Thanks Charlie. I’m just getting the hang of turning but getting better at it.

Looks much like the maple log I was given that had been spalted and chewed by bugs. Wonderful work.
