Here is a bowl that was originally just a piece of firewood. It’s a piece of maple that has some spalting and some curly figure in it as well. It measures 4 1/2 “ x 2”, and is finished with a friction polish.

Nice looking bowl Andy. It’s amazing what you can get out of the wood pile. Great job!

Makes you think more about what you are throwing the the fireplace. Bet I’ll start looking at firewood a little closer. Beautiful bowl Andy.

The mark of a turner is:
When a tree is felled they are the ones looking at all the gnarled, twisted and rooted and burled parts while the flat wood worker is trying to cut is off the nice staight boards.
That’s why it’s important to take a flatwood worker with you when you are felling.
They clean up after you saving tons of time! <g>

Thanks for your comments. There is a lot of interesting patterns and figure hidden beneath the bark of trees.
