I've been working on some bowls this week. My wife will fill them with Christmas candy and give them out to neighbors and friends. This first one is from some elm. Most of what we have around here is chinese elm but this was different. I'm not sure what kind it is other than elm. But it has some pretty wild color in it. It's 12" by 2.5".
This one is from some silver maple that I tried to spalt myself. It was in a bag of dirt with a few horse biscuits and some miracle grow for most of the summer. It didn't spalt much though. It's 10 " x 4"
