    ....more bowls..........

    Just finished a few more so..........prepared to be bored

    This small walnut bowl measures 6 1/4" x 2" with 5/16 walls. Finish is AO and buffed.



    A furniture maker I met gave me some scrap glue-ups, this is the result of the first......8 1/2" x 4" with 3/8" walls. Finish is AO and buff. My 8 y.o. daughter Haleigh took the picture.



    This small Box Elder bowl measures 5 1/4" x 1 1/2 " with 3/16" walls.....getting towards 5/16" at the bottom. Finish is MW Wipe-on poly and buffed.



    This burnt rim elm bowl was turned green to finish. MW Wipe-on poly and buffed, 6" x 2" with 1/8" walls. My daughter took this picture



    Finally.....a few of you asked for inside pics of my burnt toast bowl.....heres the best I could do.....maybe I should have Haleigh try



    Thanks for looking!

    Nice work. I love the Walnut, both the solid and the glue-up. I REALLY love that Box Elder. I wish it grew around here. The rim on the Elm bowl is interesting but I'll defer comment on the burnt toast bowl.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Burnt bowl looks interesting. I'd be interested in seeing the side pose.

    Barry I really like the all but the first two are my favorites. Well done.

    Looks good Barry, lots of variety there.

    The Elm and the Keyaki I do here certainly are related, how was the Elm to turn, I find the Keyaki ROCK HARD when dry, but wet, well I got to give that a go, as the wood is a LOT easier to turn wet.

    Barry, the Burnt Rim Elm bowl is the winner for me, I can never resist distinctive figuring in a piece of wood, just wondering what shape it will eventually settle out as it was turned to completion green.

    I'm with Chas on this - the elm bowl grabs and holds my attention because of the distinctive grain! Nice work on all the bowls!

    Thanks folks!

    Stu, I have more problem with tearout on dry elm than "hardness". It turns wonderfully green.

    Barry, I like all of these as well, but the elm I like the most. I've turned quite a bilt of wet Elm lately and I like it a lot. BTW, You've got quite a good photographer in your daughter...much better than me!
