Been seeing a lot mulberry on here lately, Here is a bowl I finished a week ago. Its about 14 inches around an 8 inches tall. This piece was taken from the local transfer sight out of there ‘to be mulched’ pile. This is a three way crotch with what I think might be a lightning strike down the side of it.

Finished with wipe on poly.

Did you carve those by hand? Those are great. I love me some ugly chunks of wood. The uglier the better. (Round these parts ‘ugly’ is a term of endearment.)

That’s a beautiful piece of wood bowl. Great craftsmanship. Nicely turned, close to perfection.

I pretty much use a 3/8 and a half inch v bowl gouge on everything that I turn. As for the brand, I use henry taylor and thompson. More importantly in a large turning like this is a large heavy handle to dampen vibration. Hope this helps.
