My first successful attempt at a Bowl. turned from a persimmon crotch with one “leg” chock full of ants.
The crotch was more or less green, as it was from a tree cut down on my parents property last august.
For finish, I burnished the exterior with shavings.
As you might expect, ants don’t appreciate being spun at 1200 RPM. they came flinging out of the stock and proceeded to sting me up one side and down the other. I had to shake my shirt out more than once!
All in all I am pleased with the outcome, however I would love to find a way to glue-mount green wood securely. At least until I can afford a chuck.
