Hi, this is from my sisters tree, just a very small bowl, it’ Hackberry with the Watco finishing products, light walnut danish oil and a wipe on poly.

Nice turning! Good to see your name and date. I need to do that more often. I’m starting to forget when I made some things.

Really is nice wood, does warp a lot, but it does have some nice grain, especiall with a stain to bring it out.

Nice bowl! I have some hackberry in the shop my father in-law gave me a while back and he was sure to give me the “Warning” on how difficult it is to work with. I haven’t had a chance to mess with it much and was wondering if you ran into any issues? I do know it is very hard.

I too really love the look of this wood. Hope what ever I decide to do looks as well as yours.

I like the bowl. Hackberry is very hard wood. The guy where I got my rough lumber,at the mill close to me. He has a piece of spalted hackberry. I’ve been trying to talk him out of it. He said his TS couldn’t cut it. I just think his blade was way to dull though.

Answer to Maveric, Well, it was green wood so it cut pretty easy, I’m really knew to this stuff so I can’t really tell You if the tearout was bad compared to other woods but I can tell You this wood warps a lot, Iv’e been trying microwaving my wood now as I did with this piece and just allowed enough material after the rough turn to return after it had warped from drying.

I have another piece of the same tree and have rough turned it and it has speckles in it, I think it will look nice after it is finished, but this piece did start to crack in the microwave process, so quit microwaving it and glued the crack with superglue and put it in bag to dry the rest of the way.

I don’t know Eagle, but I can’t imagine any saw not being able to cut it. It’s not made of stone or anything, plus like I said it was green wood. I just cut it with my chainsaw and then roughed it out on the band saw, no problems there.
