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.
