Well folks, here is a bowl turned from birch. My folks cut down this tree about a year ago and asked if I’d like to have the trunk…...how could I refuse. I found a local sawyer and ended up with 3 slab of 12/4 about 5 feet long and 12 inches wide. It was pretty dry, so there wasn’t too much waiting following rough-out…...basically had to find an hour or so when the kids were napping to finish it up. Anyway, any and all criticism is welcome, I still have a lot to learn….especially how to turn down the foot at the very end…..had a little trouble there, lol.
-- Measuring twice and cutting once only works if you read the tape correctly!
