I finally got around to making a bowl from the piece of Mulberry I was given by the sawmill operator at Jerome,Az. This was from a tree that was over 35” across. I could only carry this small piece back to the car. It was thin so I glued on a scrap block for the spigot. I was going to make a natural edge bowl but there were so many cracks in the sap wood and the thick bark kept flying off like shrapnel that I opted to turn most of the sap wood off. There is one hairline crack in the remaining sapwood and it is filled with epoxy.
This bowl will be in the raffle at the St Mary Magdalen summer festival in July along with the 2 two others that I did not have clear pictures of. All are finished with EEE and Shelawax.
