    "Gift" Bowl and 3 others....

    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........

    Barry all of those are great! I really like the Olive bowl. Holy grain on that Elm! That looks crazy, in a good way. Seems like the grain is really tight and close together for Elm too Looks really nice I like em all.

    Great job Barry! The elm is my favorite. I like the wire brushing on the outside.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    My vote goes to the round-bottomed bowl. All of them look real nice, though.

    Put me down for the elm Though the wallnut is impressive I can't help thinking it looks a bit like cow hide.

    Nice to see some bowls with simple clean lines. Makes a pleasant change from arty ones and natural edge. These look good and useful at the same time
