On my way home this past spring, I came upon a fellow you was cutting down a rather large Weeping Willow. Of course, I introduced myself and talked him into giving me a few pieces to take home.
Rough turned back in early June I think, and finished up this past week. This bowl will be going back to the gentleman I received the wood from. This willow is not the best for turning in my opinion. Rather soft with lots of tear-out, but with sharp tools and a couple of applications of shellac, I managed to get it off the lathe…
Bowl is around 12” by 5” finished to about 1/4” thickness. Two coats of Watco butcher block finish.
