That’s what I call beautiful. Not a lot of people can see something like this coming from a piece of burned wood. What’s that old saying? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.Mr. Tomwww.mrtomswoodworking.com84-384-4938

Thanks. Craigo, it is pretty new. Got it back in Early February :) My only regret is not going all the way and getting a 600+ series. Love the saw though.

Great bowl. So glad you posted the 1st picture. The bowl really reveals what its source is…like looking at the stump or log for the first time. Cool.

Thanks guys. Thedude50: I was told it was blown down a year or so ago in a bad storm/tornado. She thought the log was still “ok” but turns out it got pushed up in a brush pile and lit on fire. The outer two inches were badly checked but there was still some decent wood inside. I think the fire had made it rather brittle and chip prone however.

Nice bowl! I find it very amusing to see what can be made from a log.
