A woman artist called and said that a 150 year old oak tree had fallen over in her yard in Ojai. This is one of many large diameter bowls I was able to get out of the huge rounds I picked up. This bowl was cut two weeks ago and is nearly stable. I’m watching the cracks and areas where the grain is raising but the shape remains stable. If you’ve read my profile you know that I am not adhering to normal drying or turning techniques but I think I’m on to something???
