Storm Front

The grain on this one reminds me of the spring and summer storm fronts that roll through central Illinois. It measures 5.5” wide by 7.5” tall, turned from box elder, and is finished with wipe-on poly.

This is beautiful. I feel that I should say more but this would not add anything useful to the comments on this piece. The grain and color on this bowl are simply gorgeous.

Thanks for the post.

You are turning (sorry ;-) out some beautiful work trifern. This is my favorite so far and the name you picked is just perfect. Great stuff and thanks for always letting us take a look.
