    A few bowls in progress....

    I have a few bowls under way for up-coming market... these range in size from 7 3/4 to 9 3/4... Not sure which is which in these photos... the bowls are all marked on the bottom with my catalog number, but didn't not the numbers when I made the pictures... These are all Spalted Hackberry and finished with a satin polyurethane... they have a little shine on them because the poly is wet... I just put a coat on all of them. These photos are kinda quick and dirty with my phone... still in the shop...

    This little bowl isn't hackberry and I didn't pay much attention to the bark when I cut the blank... I'm guessing this may be a piece of the Magnolia.... at any rate, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. The bowl is 8" diameter and 2" high.

    Finally, a 10 inch bowl from Mimosa stump that is for a couple that gave me the wood. They had a Mimosa that was dying and I cut two of the trunks and the stump... the stump was a crotch piece where I cut the bowl from. I did have to fill a couple of voids in the wood...

    I hate taking pictures with my phone... they come in at all angles... I turned all these right side up when I first edited them...

    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.

    Those are really nice, Chuck! I like hackberry. I'm finishing up a batch of them right now for a reseller I have in Mississippi. This group is 12 bowls of various sizes and 4 boxes. He's gonna have to pick on another wood as I am just about out of usable hackberry right now. That is until I get to take down another tree. Which who knows when that will be. Good looking bowls.
