    Red Elm Bowl

    This came from a storm-downed tree in my back yard. I've got loads of blanks from it.

    Dimensions are 9 1/2" x 3 1/4", finished with Mylands. After seeing that 3-part foot here (I think on Travis' HF), I had to try one. It could have used some more hand sanding but I got tired. There were a couple cracks that I had to fix with CA but it turned out okay.

    Thanks for looking.

    Lovely bowl!!

    Elm is a lovely wood for bowls isn't it? the grain can be so wild and the spalting has so much contrast.

    cheers eh?

    I like the classic shape to your bowl! Beautiful grain, color and finish! The feet detail was worth the effort! Nice work Cody!

    Man, that's some pretty wood, Cody. Great job on the bowl.

    I believe the technical term for the bottom treatment is the "Stinson Footsies".

    Thanks y'all.

    I take this turning stuff by spells...usually in between flat work projects. I sure appreciate all the comments.
