Hello friends, I thank you kindly for jumping over from the blog and checking out the finished bowl.

Very challenging and educational in it’s creation. The piece is black cherry (Lost wood from hurricane Sandy). The project was sawed, hewed, carved, shaped and shaved using traditional handtools. Four letter words used by the author in the start of it’s design which is also at times traditional….lol!

Seriously, it was challenging but incredibly rewarding and I look forward to enjoying more of this work.

I hope this may bring some inspiration your way.

Thank you for your time and inspiring works!

Take care,

I look at your projects and feel bad that I don’t do more with hand tools. Great work.
