(I am the original Kerux. When I bought a new computer with the newest Windows version…. for some reason my stuff wouldn’t transfer. So after several months of just ‘watching’ I decided to start a new Kerux)
This Bowl has been over a year in the making. This came from a humongous Silver Maple that had to be taken down. It was on the property of an elderly lady in the church where I served in Delaware. The tree was there when her husband and her moved in and 60 years later it had to be taken down. I was able to get a few small blocks of it (everybody and their brother was there trying to get free fire wood).
I wanted a little bit just to make her something out of the tree that meant so much to her. I roughed out the bowl but in the mean time we moved back to Ohio. And as many of you know, I just got the shop up this year. I just finished up the bowl, not anything striking about the grain or anything, but it is her tree. My wife is getting ready to send her a few things, and I wanted to have the bowl done so it could be sent as well.
Silver Maple, 6”x4”, 6 coats of wipe on poly, buffed and waxed.
