    My Latest Creations

    Here are the last few bowls that I have finished. Comments are welcome. The first pot is cedar (which by the way, I found to be difficult to turn –grain is stringy) 8” dia. and 9” high, the second is maple 10” dia. and 3” high, third is sycamore 7” dia. and 1 1/2" high, fourth is burr oak crotch 7” dia. and 2” high at the high point, fifth is catalpa 6” dia. and 3” high, last is a natural edge catalpa 6” dia and 5” high at the high points. Catalpa is tough to turn and finish.

    Those are some beauties. I really like the cedar. Well done.

    Nice work on all of them Wayne! Really like the grain of the Catalpa! You have the stats listed for 6 bowls but only have 5 photos... looking forward to seeing the 6th!

    Steve, you are right. I forgot the cedar bowl. It is an end grain pot.

    Hey - that was worth the wait! Beautiful wood color and grain! Looks like it is fairly thin also. Nice work!

    Steve, the wall thickness is about 1/4". they don't show up in the photo but there are several cracks in the bowl. I couldn't get it to dry without the cracks.

    Dad, those all look great! You have been busy.

    You all should see the hollowing tools he made to make the end grain cedar pot...that's a hint Dad

    Wayne, those are some good looking pieces.

    Please show us the pictures of the hollowing tools that you've made.
