These bowls and utensils are made out of a cherry tree my neighbor cut down in his yard. They are finished with a walnut and mineral oil finish. (food safe) I have sold this set and they are on their way to Japan, where I hope my friends get many years of use from them.

You must have been practicing. Great one!

Your bowls are beautiful.

About 16 years ago a Fla Cherry layed down from it own weight in my backyard. I had it milled on site and have been using little peices of it ever since. I started out with about 300 bd ft, I’m sure I still have 250 left. It’s beautiful wood and next week it will be moved to my new shop where I will finally have time to make something out of it.
