This American Elm Natural Edge Bowl was wet turned and finished with satin lacquer. It measures 9” X 8” X 6” high and was a fun project.

I really like working with American Elm. Probably didn’t smell very good though. Really nice job.

-- 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.

Very beautiful bowl. Nice to know something good can come from an Elm tree.
