Turned a couple bowls from red oak. These were opposite halves of a chunk of wood that was sitting in the firewood pile waiting to split, but it was a piece of crotch wood that promised to offer some character so I made bowls rather than a fire with it.

Much nicer to have the bowls than the firewood Paul! Smaller than the Redwood Burl bowl?

Thanks, guys!

John, I’ll give you an ‘amen’ on that; I’ll find something else to burn from the shop without any problem. :)

These oak bowls are each approximately 10” diameter and 5” tall. I no longer have that redwood burl bowl, but as I recall it was roughly the same size.

-- PaulMayer,

Have your say...
