A friend of mine called me this summer, and ask if I would be interested in some free lumber. FREE!! LUMBER, Do monkeys like bananas?? I went to his house, and there waiting for me was three cherry logs all measuring about 16” in diameter, and 12’ long, along with an Ash log that measured 2’ in diameter X8’ long. Just to be polite, I ask what he wanted for all of this. He said that his wife would like a bowl to put fruit in, so this is what I made him. The bowl is 11 ” in diameter X 3 and 3/4” deep. There is 89 pieces of Ash Walnut, Curly Maple, And Jatoba in it, This is about all that my little Rikon !2-16 can handle. I think that I got the better of the trade
