    Elm Bowl for Neighbors

    This Elm bowl is about 8” Diameter and 4” high. It came from a neighbor’s yard 4 or 5 years ago and was finally finished and delivered on Saturday. They were quite pleased.

    Sweet looking bowl and I'm betting the neighbors were thrilled!

    Very nice, Don. I'm sure the neighbor was pleased. Was that elm hard to turn when dry? The couple of pieces of elm I've finish turned were sure some tough, tool-dulling pieces of wood when dry.

    Between the spice bowls and this bowl you must really like your neighbors. You are giving them some beautiful items.

    Nice bowl Don. I particularly like the lip. I dont see many turners put a lip on their bowls. Is that design or just cause they dont know how to? Nice smooth color that bowl has.
    cheers
