    Elm (I think) Bowl

    Hello everyone...

    If you follow the construction forum, you know that I am just getting started in a new shop. It has been quite a while since I had some real turning time, so I decided to force it (put some other things on hold). The rusult is this bowl made from elm, I believe...

    I rough turned two blanks from the same log about a year ago, and decided to finish them this weekend. I completely finished the first one and the other just needs some final sanding and a coat or two of oil.

    Here is one of the rough bowls mounted on the lathe:

    The mushrooms are another project that I did real quick with my two daughters and their friends. I just cut up four maple branches and quickly turned the mushrooms. Then set them up in the grass with some paint. They had a great time, and I did as well.

    Thanks for looking, and comments are welcome.

    Nice job, James. That's a very pretty piece of wood, whatever kind it ends up
    being. I really like the contrast in the colors.
