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!!

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

Gorgeous piece! You have revealed the hidden beauty of the burr. Like the natural edge and the finish. Great job!
