    Elm Bowls

    Lastly here are two Elm bowls that I turned this week. They are 13" X 5" and both are sold. They wanted them to put dinner rolls in, salad, chips or one said when her husband wants to make a lot of popcorn. They are also finished with Antique Oil.

    Thanks. Vaughn I don't know what has been going on but it sure is nice. I don't know if we have more visitors in town this summer or what but have been getting a lot of requests from the gallery.

    Thanks Jeff. Yes this past 8 days I have gotten some quality turning time. Hopefully more this week as I need to make some oak lamps.

    Bernie this has got to be one of my favorite bowls I've seen. The grain in that wood is just awesome! The finish really sets it off well.
