    Box Elder bowl

    Here's a little bowl outa box elder from the neighbor's yard (they had a tree blow down). Measures 7 1/2 x 7 and is 2" tall. I turned from start to finish in one session and it is a-moving! Walls are ~3/8"....... AO finish.





    Comments and critiques welcome.

    Now that looks like the box elder I have to work with... it's beautiful wood.

    I like your form and finish... great job.

    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.
