This is a bowl made from my sister’s ornamental pear tree that was cut down when it was only supposed to be trimmed. My knot head nephew told the tree trimmers to take it down and the listened to him. So now we have lots of wood that turns very nicely. It had a knot in it with a lot of dead wood so while I had it in the basement carving out the knot, it dried and moved so much that it made it hard to finish sand. That hole going around did not help matters much either. It will be a little consolation to have a couple pieces turned from her lost tree.
Finish is Deft semi gloss lacquer.
