Hello folks

I cut & made this burr elm bowl from a huge piece of burr elm that i’ve had stashed away for a few years!! (see pic) in total I got 11 bowl blanks from the original big lump!

This bowl is 6” wide and is finished with mineral oil

-- it can't rain all the time!!

Looking good George, congratulations on a wonderful piece.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Spectacular turning. I like the live edge burl look plus the variations in height and grain. Looks great.
