Beautiful turning. Love hearing about the storm wood being used. Great job.

Beautiful wood – did you turn this green or let it dry first?

Sras.. We cut this maple on our portable sawmill, let it dry for 6 months, turned it out as a bowl blank then put a little end green sealer on it, let it sit for another couple month till the moisture content was down to 8% and then turned the finish bowl. I have more Maple turning blanks that I could use up in 20 years!

Darryl. This is a 2 piece design. The bowl and the base are 2 seprate pieces. The base has a tenon on it that fits into a recess in the bowl.

Thanks Chip for the comment. i found it to be alot cheaper to buy a small sawmill and use what I have on the property then purchasing retail. I have alot of fun woodworking and making gifts for family and friends.

Nice to mill your own timber, put it to bed for a while & then see what you have, (firewood or a treasure)this is a very nice result, be nice to see the rest you have stored away sometime
