Some pics of a recently turned beech bowl.
This was made from a wind-fallen tree I chopped up about 3 years ago. I sealed the ends of some of the nicer logs and left them outside to dry out slowly.
This is the first bowl made from one of these logs, and I’m very pleased with the result – really nice spalting and not too many cracks, plus it was nice and easy to carve on the lathe too.
The unsorted selection of pics below show it on the lathe and on the log it came from, with the random traffic lamp for scale…
