piece of hickory, that has been sitting by my firepit for a year. Decided to turn it, instead of burn it!

i prefer the end-turned bowls…the rings always add so much visual impact.

Nice looking bowl. I think you made the right choice to turn it instead of burn it !!

Any problems with cracking?

I have seen a lot of bowls on LJ’s, but this one is way up there on my list of favorites! Hickory is such a beautiful wood, and it makes some fine bbq too!!

Thanks for the comments! And for SAS, I did have a smaller hickory bowl crack at a knot, but so far the others haven’t. (Also had a cherry bowl split on the side) RW, you’re right, I do like cookin with it,as well!
