This is the last of the bowls that I made from the St. Peter’s church 250+ year old Horse Chestnut. There were a few I didn’t take pictures of, just not enough time to get them all. Tung oil finish on the bowl and letter openers.

Am finishing up a cross now, hope to get a shot of that posted by next week. Thanks for looking.

Great looking bowl, really nice the way the grain is showing. Neat looking letter openers.

That’s a really eye-catching bowl, John. I love the grain pattern.

Beautiful piece of horse chestnut ! How hard is that stuff ? Is it nice to turn ? Any smell ? We have a red horse chestnut but I doubt I can get permission to cut it down !!

Thanks, Dwight! Pretty soft and light. Difficult to turn mostly because of the rot the tree had, made it rather crumbly even with carbide tools. It wanted to tear more than slice.
