I'm just getting started with my bowl turning .... I don't normally post photos. But, a discussion came up about the dyed Aspen wood ... so, here are a couple of bowls I made as Christmas presents for my son and wife.

They're about 10 inches across and 6 or so high.

Thanks for the kind words. The wood is from Colorado. Tom Frink and his son dye the Aspen as it is growing. Here's their website addy:

The turning blanks are not solid colors. There's variation to how the dye takes hold .... which, I think, makes it even more attractive. If you've never turned Aspen be prepared for some punky wood. It's worth the effort. I gave the coolest bowl to a friend. I'll try to get some pictures of it.
