This bowl has come a long way, starting with the removal of the tree. Boards were sawn for air drying, the massive stump was extracted from the earth and trimmed down using the roots as turning blanks. The stump has to be cleaned of rocks, dirt, and debris. Next comes building a jig to saw the stump on our bandmill, sawing the stump into five pieces. We used the shopbuilt circle jig on our bandsaw to saw a 13” bowl blank, then turned on the lathe.
