These bowls were made from some old downed palo verde branches that were just starting to get spalted. The pieces were not too thick so I was able to get a couple shallow 4 1/4” diameter bowls made for gifts for the neighbors out here in the park. The first one had a fine black burn line on the edge from polishing. It looked kind of neat so I chose not to sand it out.
The third bowl was my fist attempt at a natural edge bowl. It also was not very thick and the bark came off a lot so I ground it all off. There are some cracks in it that I left- may fill at a later date. This one is 4 1/2” diameter and could have been cut deeper. I changed the plan for the base at the last minute and made it about 1 3/8” diameter and a little raised. This one was real fun sanding and polishing!!
They are all finished with EEE and Shellawax
