    8 hackberry bowls

    A few months ago my neighbor lost a small hackberry tree to a storm. She let me take as much as I wanted, which wasn't a lot but enough to keep me busy for a little while. These range from 6" to 8", all have a buffed DO finish.

    They came out nice. Hackberry spalts easily and looks great. You should try to spalt a couple of pieces.

    I like your bowls..... Hackberry is one of my favorite woods... my pastor had a huge tree come down in a tornado a few years back and let have it whole tree... the trunk was about 3' at the base... then branched into two main trunks... some of it was spalted.... spalted hackberry is some beautiful wood..
    this is a bowl out of one of the pieces... Click image for larger version.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Good stuff, Mark. I like all of them, with #6 being my favorite. Glad to see your lathe is getting some action once again.
