These are a couple of bowls using cutting board scraps and finished with wipe on poly. The first one is made of red oak, pine, and aromatic cedar. The second bowl is of red oak, walnut, cedar, poplar, and pine. The woods used were all sawed on my sawmill and air dried.

I like both of these a lot! The first one actually looks like a basket. Very nice.

Whoa, thought I had a relapse, the bottom of that one bowl is kinda trippy. Nice bowls though, I like them very much.

Thanks for all the nice comments.

Branch, the first bowl is 5 1/5” dia at top and 3 1/2” dia at the bottom, it is 3” tall.

The second one is 2 1/4” tall x 6” diameter.

Thanks again,
