I needed something to do while glue was drying so I turned and carved out these two bowls. The chestnut bowl was from a crotch that had long arms but a short base that was pretty cracked, but I tried it anyway. Most of the cracks turned away and I did not get a good heart shape yet. It finished at 4 1/4” x 1 3/4” high.
The driftwood bark was found by Lake Michigan and I had it stashed in the back of my car for a few weeks. I trimmed it on the ends and textured the ends and the top with a brass wire wheel. It is 1” x 2 1/2” x 5 1/2” and the center was carved with a 3/4” carbide burr.
They are both finished with clear spray glaze.
