this is a bowl i made from a piece of aspen that a friend had given me. the walls are a little less then 1/8 inch and it is 7 inchs from tip to tip, and 3 1/2 inchs tall. there is no finish on this piece. i really enjoyed working with aspen and will be trying some more soon.all comments welcome.

Nice job! Love the shape and I like how the light passes through on the second pic. Why no finish?

Fantastic bowl. Love the live edge. Nice thin turning. Great shape.

Is one wing taller then the other or is my computer screen tilted?haha

Keep up the great work.

Great Job!! Aspen looks like it could be soft to work with, is it? I really like the shape.

Great looking bowl. I haven’t gone to down to an 1/8” thick yet, at least not on purpose.

Very nicely turned bowl. It must be difficult to turn a bowl with wall thickness as less as < 1/8 ”. I am curious to know how you will finish it.

Great job, I love turning natural edges, there is definately a challenge to them. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice bowl, I like the design. But I too wonder why no finish. I think it will distort if it is still green.
