I messed up in the posting order of the three bowls posted today. The story I wanted to tell with these posts would have been better with the cedar bowl first, but here goes anyway. This is #63 and the last one made. It is very simple segmented about 11 1/2” X a little over 4”. The very contrasting colors make it kinda loud but most seem to like. I do turn solid wood bowls from time to time and do not have one here now but only have used dried wood. Have not used wet wood yet but do have 5 large pieces to try soon. Thanks to everyone for reading and looking at my posts.
