A guy named Bob dropped off two cherry logs with my barber and called to ask if I’d turn him a Cherry bowl from the tree they cut down by his house. Well here it is -9 1/4” x 3” high. It started out 4 1/4” high but then it chipped out about 1/2” deep between two cracks. When I tried to cut off the chipped section with a fine parting tool, it chipped out 1 1/4” deep, so I carefully turned it to clean up the edge and epoxied any existing cracks. Now I have to find Bob. I lost the little piece of paper with his name and phone number so I’ll have to wait until he comes in for another haircut!!
The guy’s name is Bob Bristol and he picked up his bowl and loved it.
He has no more cherry wood it was al taken.
