This bowl is made with Elm. I cut the tree down about a week ago and wanted to start with a small tree easy to get at. The wood is dyed and i used india ink to put a little design into the wood.

Beautiful piece unique design I’m new to wood turning myself and man can it get addictive, thanks for sharing can’t wait to see more, by the way I know you mentioned your bowl was dyed but what is the finish you used to complete the bowl to give it the high gloss.

Have to say… That’s a real eye catcher of a “thingy” Joe.
You didn’t mention size, but it looks as if it has some heft to it. I’ll bet it feels good in your hands.
Good, clean lines and movement.
Keep up the good work.

Peace and blessed be.

The bowl is fantastic. The grains just pop. I did not know you could use freshly cut wood for turning’s. Will the moisture content cause the wood to split after it is sealed. I am thinking of turning some bowls out of newly fallen trees.

Awsome piece…..I think a few pictures from different angles would be a nice addition. By the way, the finish is fantastic, is the inner portion blacked-out….might just be the light from the photo?

Beautiful! By “thingy” you mean a piece of art looking for a function, right?

Yes this piece is looking for a function. I don’t mind it being called a “thingy” though, people have the best time coming up with ideas.
