Sister bowl as I’ve been calling this one has a bit of a story if you will indulge me.
My 74 year old father spent two days digging up an old dead Walnut stump from his hunting camp in South Carolina. He proceeded to split one of the lowest chunks manually with a sledge. I wish I had the picture to post, but he posed with the two pieces of wood knowing that I would enjoy making something out of them. Last year I turned the first one and gave it to my younger sister along with a couple of spheres that she displays in it. I recently finished this matching “sister piece” and it is destined to go to my older sister this Christmas. I always enjoy the wood most that has a story with it, but have to say that this one is particularly satisfying knowing that both sisters will appreciate their bowls but also recognize the effort that Dad put into it.
