It has been a good year for me finding local wood to turn.
Here is a natural edge bowl made from mulberry that was harvested just last week.
I live in Las Vegas, Nv. and back on 5/20 we had a wind storm that took down this mulberry tree.
I friend found this tree on craigslist, and we went over and got all we could haul. Free wood in the desert.
Gotta love it. I had a class with Jimmy Clewes Wednesday night and several of us used this wood to turn some bowls.
This is the most amazing wood I have ever turned. I had heard that mulberry looked good, but had no idea is would be so wild in color and figure.
