    Siberian Elm NE Bowl

    Had a crotch chunk of Elm laying around the shop for a while now, so thought I would try a natural edge bowl. I had to leave it thick as the bark inclusion ran right down the middle. Bowl is 14" in diameter and finish with WOP.

    I've never seen one quite like that before. It's an eyecatcher!

    It's also a finger-catcher if you're not careful turning it.

    Nicely done. Nate. Hope to see it in person before too long.
