I got some shop time right after thanksgiving and had a chance to make some Christmas presents though I would let you folks have a peek first.
The first is an apricot bowl that I made for my mother-in-law. This is made from an apricot tree that we cut down from her back yard during the summer. The tree was almost dead from insect damage.
It is about 12 inches in diameter and about 6 inches tall. Wall thickness is about 1/4 inch. That apricot turned like butter and was very nice to work with.
