by now you folks know i came into a load of willow… HA!!!
this i made last month for my mother’s birthday…
it turned out looking quite like one of the collection plates at church, but, i assure you this was not intentional… HA!!!

Really pretty grain in this bowl. I’m guessing that is bark? on the one edge? Is Willow nice to work with?

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)

that very dark spot on the edge is sapwood, yes…
the bark is far too loose to try any natural edge stuff (at least it is for this rookie), but, other than that, willow turns easy and takes a lovely shine…
