    crab apple bowl

    This is a small bowl made for a guy at work,that brought me some crab apple. Turned it about 3 weeks ago,but finilly got around to finishing it yesterday. Always heard this stuff would warp a bunch, and boy it did. Glad i left enough wood on it to return.Find out tomorrow if he likes it. Thanks and all comments welcome.

    I think he will be pleased. Classic form, good looking wood and a nice finish.

    Should be well received.

    thanks mohammad and Les. I've done a couple other bowls for him, for some wood he's brought me. I guess that's why he keeps bringing me more wood.

    Got to agree!

    I must agree with the others, nice from every angle. I sometimes think I have more fun making something for some one that brought me the wood. Hand them a pen or a small bowl and they can't believe it came from the wood they gave me. A smile on some ones face, as good as money.
