Our area got hit with some impressive winds last summer when a "twister" almost touched down...... I helped some folks from church clean up their yard and got about 1 1/2 cords of firewood for my trouble. This bowl is turned from a piece of elm that the wife's father planted back in 1915 or so.............
8 1/2 x 3 1/4....sanded thru 800 on inside, wire brushed on outside. Walnut oil finish, no buff.
Russian Olive............this piece was REALLY checked bad, but got something out of it.
5 1/4 x 2 1/2 Walnut Oil finish.
Walnut from my free tree score a few months ago.....the sap is sooooooo white!
6 3/4 x 2 3/4 Walnut Oil finish.
And some more Hackberry..... Sanded thru 800 on inside, outside wire brushed AND with no bottom.....it wobbles but don't fall down!
5 1/2 x 2 1/2 Walnut Oil finish........
