    Couple of Pieces

    Spalted Elm Hollow Form, 3 1/2" x 6 3/4", buffed Danish Oil finish. This is some of that "schoolteacher" wood I harvested recently.

    Redbud endgrain bowl, 5 1/4" x 10 1/4", buffed Danish oil finish.

    Very nice Cody. You do seem to coax some beautiful pieces out of pretty wood.

    Ah, Cody, that is sweet! I like the flatter top line. Just goes to show just how versatile turning can be.

    I'm sorry to say,being a school teacher, I don't know what school teacher wood is.

    Pete,

    My 3rd grade teacher had some standing dead trees she wanted taken down. I volunteered to do it for the wood.

    I posted about it here, http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...ad.php?t=10978

    Nicely done on both pieces, Cody. In most cases, I'm not a big fan of the sharp shoulders on hollow forms, but you still executed it very well. The bowl looks great, too. Nothing I'd change.

    Fantastic turnings, Cody. Congrats on the wood find.
    There are no mistakes in woodworking until you run out of wood.
