    Natural edge elm bowl

    This one is about 11" max diameter. The bark would not stay on, I blackened the edge with a soldering pencil. Finish is lacquer.

    Nicely done, Dennis. Cool-looking wood, and kudos on the thin walls.

    Very nice looking bowl. Thin walls look good.

    Very pretty wood, Dennis! I very much like what you did with it.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    Very Nice bowl... I also have some elm, but the last two pieces I looked at were almost mush... hopefully I have a couple pieces that are still good... Love the shape.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
