Frozen water lines in the Kootenays led to some Birch being cut down by a friend a year and a half ago. Burned some rings and experimented with a painted rim. Finished with Boiled Linseed Oil and Wipe on Poly. I was really unsure about the rim, but grew to like it over the days the Poly went on. 10” X 3.5”.

love your design. How did you burn rings? Seems to me that if you burnt the thin rings you would cut into non burnt wood. I would like to know how you did that.

Great work

Thanks guys. Mike I’ve had that feeling many times while looking at posts. Petey, I used a wire pressed against the spinning bowl. Utube has videos of this.
