so here is my latest turning. as I am learning how to get pieces from the log I saw this and just had to see what it would look like finished. and here it is. I got alittle thin on the one side but hey it adds character I think. this bowl is only about 8in tall with the top being maybe 5 inches across.

Why spend when you can “procure”? I try not to buy any wood when there are so many free sources, otherwise thrown out or burned. A shame.

I like the “defects” in the bowl. Can’t use that bowl for soup… haha. I also like the use of the sap wood at the top. Too many try to remove that before turning but it adds so much to the final design. Keep up the good work.

Most of my wood is green wood for free. I always keep my eyes open when driving for people with trees fallen or recently cut. I even have been able to get wood from a guy that cuts to sell as firewood. He was impressed that I could make something out of firewood and gave me some for free. Which reminds me, I need to make him a bowl from the flaming boxelder he gave me so I can keep getting wood from him.
