    Spalted Elm Bowl and Redbud HF

    I leave tomorrow evening for another two weeks offshore so this is the last of my turnings until I get back home. Tomorrow I clean the shop and probably mow the yard before leaving.

    Both of these are from that wood score I posted about.
    The spalted Elm bowl is 3 1/2" x 9 3/4". The Redbud HF is 4 1/2" x 6" with a Mesquite collar. Both are finished with Deft Gloss Lacquer.

    They both look real nice, Cody. Lot of cool stuff going on in the wood on both pieces.

    The HF has a bit sharper curve on the shoulders than what you usually make, but then again, if they're all made the same, things get boring pretty quickly.

    Hey Cody!

    I love the form and figure in your pieces!!! Your work is just great!

    By the way -- while you're offshore this time, try not to stir up another storm!

    Cody those are some fine pieces. I like the form on the HF. Wood on both looks great.

    That wood from the haul turned out great. The HF is really nice, but I love the spalting in the bowl. It really catches my eye.

    Be safe while on duty.

    Yep, both of those are really nice, but I do really like the bowl, the spalting is sure nice, adds a lot to the piece
