OK, so a week ago Saturday, my mom asks me to remove two trees in her front yard that are going to become a problem in the near future. like a good son I say no problem.
while cutting out the offend trees I see a nice chunk at the base that is part crotch and I figure there might be a bowl hidden in it.
as soon as I got home with my prize I thought i should maybe rough it out and then wait my time to return and finish it. as soon as i started cutting the water flowed… and flowed, and flowed… after taking it off the lath, i didn’t have time to cover it in anchor seal for drying right away but a light bulb blink… kind of dimly but it did blink… ahah, an idea. i went over to my table saw and buried the rough bowl in the sawdust under neath it thinking that would slow the drying until it had the time to properly seal and store it.
so I come back a few days later and to my surprise its drying great… I rebury it again and come back in a few days and it feels dry. I get out my meter and 11%... how can that be! and not a check to be seen.
return, finish and wala! finish bowl from stump to table in just over a week… ha filled it with candy and gave it back to Mom.
i still don’t know how or why it worked but I’m going to try it again just for fun.
