At our last turning guild meeting, Ron Dibble did a demo on turning a heart shaped bowl from a crotch of a tree. I was really impressed at the final product so I attempted to do that but the only chestnut crotch I had was not a balanced piece- the two arms were different lengths and much different diameters so I did the best I could. I had to do a little carving at the end to cut off the cracked end of the short piece that did not clean up or look very good.
Anyway, this is the way it finished at 7 1/4” wide and 3” high.
The finish is clear glaze spray.
I added some shots of how it began.
