I now know why these bowls are so expensive…IT TAKES FOR EVER TO CARVE THEM OUT! But it is done! Keep Apple damp to ease on the carving, if it dries, it becomes hard as a rock. Carved from a piece of an Apple tree that power company cut down along my fence line.

-- enjoy your wood...

I can only imagine that compared to our power tool projects that we have all become used to this project must have seemingly taken forever. It looks great and you must feel a real sense of accomplishment to have relived a little piece of history for yourself. Before TV, power tools, and probably even radio these got made in a lot of households by woodworkers who loved to work the wood, to while away the time, and to create something their wives told them was a necessity if they wanted biscuits and bread made.

Bet the wives still crabbed about any wood shavings left on the floor in those days too.

Very nice bowl , and it is good to see someone using found wood , it’s free , all around us , and much of it is as beautiful as these imported woods . Well done.
