    Salad Bowl for an Old Friend

    I am going to visit an old friend tomorrow and I hope he likes his gift. It is American Elm and is 15 x 9. It is finished with Mahoney's walnut oil.


    C and C always welcome.

    What's not to like

    Looks great, I'm sure he will be pleased!

    Pete,
    That is a pretty nice gift... you did a great job and I'm sure it will be appreciated.

    I especially liked the second picture marked "Uncle Pete"..

    My grandfather was known as Uncle Pete... I was about 14 before I realized who everyone was talking about when they mentioned Uncle Pete... He was Granddaddy to me, not Uncle Pete.... plus his actual name was Lewis so further confusion for me.

    After he retired, people would drive by his house and if he was sitting on the front porch, they would wave or honk.... if he wasn't there when they went by, they would look for him on the way home from town... if he wasn't there on the return trip, they would stop and see about him.

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

    Thanks for the comments! It is really appreciated!

    Chuck, The person I made this bowl for is not really my nephew. We were at a really expensive golf course 20 years ago where the fees were $150. My friend knew the pro so he introduced me as his uncle and saved me $130!
