Yew Bowl

I had a piece of yew log laying around and like the shape when looking at the end, I could have got two conventional bowls but instead went with end grain. I still have another one to do in the future. I really enjoyed turning this one. It measures 13” X 8 1/2” X 3 1/2”, I have just counted my fingers and they are all still there.
