These 2 bowls are made from the other half of the elm burl I received from LJ Tim387. They were quite a bit more challenging than the first two. I think I’m starting to get the hang of it with more patience.
The first bowl in picture 3 blew apart in pieces but I managed to find enough of it and glue it back together and get it done.
The second bowl as you see in pic 6 started off with a lot of voids so I decided to give it my best and fill it with some tinted greenish epoxy. It’s really a cool looking emerald green color only I think the new LED lights in the shop changed the color.
I did learn that there is a limit on how far you can turn some burl wearing a face mask. It was all fun. Finished with lacquer, waxed and buffed some.
Thanks for looking.
