This bowl turned out nicer than I thought it would. It has so much bark in it, along with holes, I wasn’t expecting much. The finish is a coat of oil. 13” diameter, 5” height. Happy Holidays everyone!

Because of the low winter sun I had to stand the bowl up a bit.

Great Rescue!

A nice use of wood that would otherwise be firewood!

Nothing finer than a natural looking bowl. The beauty is astounding. Way to go John.
