Just finished up 4 bowls that I had started long time ago for presents. Three of them are birch, plain birch, spalted birch. birch bowl, last is maybe elm from a friends yard. The spalted one is interesting with the black pattern in the wood.

Another shot of the burl one. Grain is always interesting in burl wood

I also made a nice cedar keepsake box for someone in the hospital but forgot to take a picture. Last week was busy, as I also made the ring cutting device and several bowls from that. It was down to minus 15 F at night so I would rather spend time in shop that outside. Nice and warm now plus 18.

Have a nice HOLIDAY from the north.

Bushmaster = BOWLMASTER TOO!

Great work.
I do not think you do anything except work on something, way past how hard I can hit it anymore!

Please keep the cold up north!

While all four are very nice Brian, I personally love the grain in the burl one, beautiful work sir…

Keep the machinery turning in that very cold climate…

Nice bowls and will make great presents. That spalted one looks to have that fractal burning. Nice work.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Birch is a nice wood to work with. Me too, I like the unpredictable spalted one.
We’re getting a Chinook here for a couple of days! Most welcome.

They all take my breath away, Brian. The spalted one, particularly so. It looks a great deal like Hackberry.
