    sweetgum branch bowl

    Here's a little bowl I made from a sweetgum branch. I thought it had a nice contrast.

    John, great job on that bowl! I can't figure out how big or small it actually is. How about something beside it to determine size? Man I am envious, bowls are something magical that I can't figure out.
