When we moved into our home we found reason to remove a medium sized maple tree from the front yard. The trunk wasn’t big enough for re-sawing, so I cut it for turning. I left a bit of bark on to give the bowls character. The dark rim on the second bowl was burned into the bowl by turning the bowl against a piece of leather to cause a friction burn. I like the result.

I like those! How long did you have to store the wood?

JL7, I stored it for a year for those bowls. I still have more, and now it’s been two years.
