This is a project I started back in October and as you can see by the first and second pictures I got to deep on the piece and cut the bottom out, so I had a funnel. I didn’t need a funnel, so over the weekend I decided to do something with it, I considered throwing it away, but decided to glue a piece of Osage Orange on the bottom and try to turn it down. Needless to say it was difficult to get the additional piece glue on center, thus it turned very uneven. However, I was determined and ended up with a piece as seen in pictures 3, 4 and 5. I now have a bowl with a bottom.
The grain in this wood is gorgeous, I love Osage Orange. I did leave some of the exterior bark on it and where some of the bark is the bowl is not perfectly round.
