This is the first bowl I have ever turned from green wood. It was my neighbors tree, and when he cut it down I salvaged a crotch piece. It kind of got a a little square when it dried, but I still like it.

It always impress me to see such thin turning.Really beautiful, just love the new shape, it makes it unique…I’m amazed you did not get any cracks, but perhaps thats because it was so thin.Best thoughts,MaFe

Really a nice piece. My guess is that by going thin, you avoided cracking and just got it to go out of round which is kind of neat.
Tell the folks you show it to, how tough it was to turn a bowl that isn’t round. Leave ‘em wondering.

I have a turner friend just south of Seattle that loves to turn green wood. He says that he likes to them, place them in a brown paper grocery bag, place them on a shelf and let them dry. He says you never know what shape they will be in a few months when you reopen the bag, and that is the beauty of it.Yours is one very beautiful piece of maple. Like bill says, tell them it’s real hard to turn them square. You had to buy a “SPECIAL” lathe with a very expensive attachment. Ya dun good. Looks great.
