Pictured: Here are a couple of Bowls that I made using my bandsaw from the log of a China Berry tree, these were cut with my chain saw locally from some farm land after high winds blew it over, the thing about this wood, it splits very fast so you have to work it quickly, once I had them cut in slices of around 6” each on my bandsaw before working them they started splitting, I could actually hear them splitting while they sat in my shop waiting their turn, I managed to get some of them before. The small one measures 3 1/2” high x 5 1/2” wide the large one measures 5 1/2” high x 6” wide, the small bowl can also nest inside of the large bowl as it was the inner core so I’m debating on keeping them separate or together. I finished them in one coat of tung oil, 3 coats of my made mix of wipe on poly and a final wipe down with paste wax.
Thanks for looking and comments are always enjoyed.
