As I was carving out this bowl, I ended up sustaining an injury to my arm from a chainsaw angle grinder. I like the way the bowl turned out and am especially happy with the color of the dogwood. It is about 16” long and 7” in diameter. The arm has pretty much recovered as well :).
Thanks for looking.

Mahdee, I guess you could call this your blood, sweat and tears bowl if that isn’t too presumptuous on my part. I like the contrast of the smooth interior and the more natural exterior.

Looks great and I’m willing to be you guys hold onto that and the story that goes with it for a while! Glad your injury wasn’t serious and that it’s healed up well.

PS: The bowl and it’s finish look really great!

Beautiful bowl! Glad you are healing well. That must have been some tree – up here in Ohio it takes decades for a dogwood to get that big. Thanks for posting, definitely a favorite.

Thank you Art. You are right.
Thank you MilFlyer, I am not sure. In a way I like to get rid of it so I can forget about the incident. At this point it is a love and hate relationship between me and that bowl.
Ken, thank you… Our “annual off the beaten path” begins this Friday and I have a feeling it will be gone.
Thank you leafherder. It was an unusually large one and best of all, it was dead. About one Jubilee ago, I promised the guy that sold this property that I would not cut all the trees especially the dogwood ones

I already love dogwood blossoms. Now, the wood, too. Beautifully done, Mahdee! Glad to hear the arm has ‘pretty much recovered as well’. Your updated image was a little concerning. Thanks for sharing.

Candy, I am so sorry for creating that illusion. It was mayonnaise, BBQ sauce and mustard. The reason I posted that picture was because so many people thought that is what it would have looked like if I didn’t go to the ER. In fact, all the scabs had been shed out and the would had fully healed at that time so I could put all that condiments on it.
I did follow certain regiment to speed up the healing without resorting to antibiotics and normal medical protocols. Certainly it is not a process for everyone unless they know their body; technically, I had had cut two major veins on that arm and they are more likely to repair themselves into 4,6,or 8 smaller ones.
