This is my first bowl. It is made from mulberry. It’s small and was a great learning lesson. The mulberry was a challenge as it was on it’s way out, some spalted and some going soft. I may put a finish on it before I call it completely done. The pen, leaning against it, is made of cherry.
Attached is also pictures of the pen, my second, along with pens from three of my four kids. The first, starting on the left, is mine, again, made in cherry. Then is my daughter’s pen, also made with cherry, then my 15 YO boy, once again in cherry, and finally, my 11 YO boy, made in beech. They all really enjoyed making their pens and I think it was really encouraging for each of them to know they could do it. My oldest is next in line to make a pen.
