    dogwood bowl

    I know my stuff don't compare with most here but, as i,ll never get where ya'll are with out trying.This is a piece i ruffed out about a week or more a go.It's dogwood burl about 41/2x2.The rim kept wanting to fall apart so i finilly just left it a little on the natural side.Wish i could afford a better camera, maybe the pics would of come out better.
    Thanks and all comments welcome.Steve

    Looks to me like you did a fine job, Stephen. That's some wild-looking wood, and your bowl came out looking nice.

    What kind of camera are you using? Maybe one of us here might be able to help you get better pics with that you've already got.

    Nice little bowl, Steve!

    I have one very similar to your's in size out of Dogwood (not burl) and my wife still uses it to keep some of her jewelry in on top of her chest of drawers.
    If you have a pulse you have a purpose...

    Very nicely done Stephen!
    Great looking piece.

    Very nice bowl... I like the "natural" aspect of it...
    I picked up some dogwood a while back and have been playing with it... it's nice wood to turn. I turned a nice little natural edge bowl about 7 in diameter... as it dried it warped into a very nice oval..
    7 1/4 x 6 1/2 and about 2 inches high with the bark all around the rim and looked like it was staying on.... rigged it up to take the tenon of the bottom and promptly cut the bottom out of it... didn't realize I was so thin on the bottom

    Now that the rains have stopped for a couple of days, maybe I can get some finish on the wood...

    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
