This started out with two pieces of scrap yellow pine I got for free, which is the price I really like. The two pieces were glued together and allowed to dry for a day or so. Cut all the excess off that I could before putting on my lathe. One of the pieces had a knot but I like working with knots whenever possible.
Well the knot came out while turning and the results was a empty knot hole. I could have turned it more and removed the knot hole but I like it the way it is. For some reason my little lady really likes this bowl so most likely she may end up with it.
Think it is about 9 inches in diameter, 2 inches deep and overall depth is 2 3/4 inches. I kept it pretty thick. Not good enough at turning now so I play it safe until such time I can do better and thinner work. My name isnt Jim yet but working toward that goal.
