Default A Handful of Natural Edge Bowls

Here is a handful of small natural edge bowls I finished up today. They are from client supplied wood and range from 4" to 6" diameter.
Poplar, Spalted Elm, and Chestnut. Finish is two coats of Tung Oil Finish and Beall Buffed.

Those are beautiful Charlie.

I have a small bowl almost done from my front yard - an Ash tree that came down with the winter storms. Lots of available wood - not a good back (My Back!) to haul it and prep it for turning blanks. I cut the logs into 14"-16" sections, but they have been sitting there in the woods for 5 months... Maybe nicely spalted???

But I love your work.

Looking good, Charlie.
Your secrets are safe with me.
There's a good chance I wasn't listening anyway.
