Wood Turning

Fire Bowl

This bowl is only my 5th piece (I don’t get nearly enough free time!). Back in December, I found a fallen branch in my neighborhood with a weird bulbous crotch. I figured it was worth a shot. I have no idea what wood species it is, but it was _very_ light colored. The grain pattern was interesting, but hardly visible. I’ve been meaning to try out wood dyes and this was the perfect time. I’m pretty pleased with the result. It’s a simple bowl with hardly any complex turning but it was fun to do and the result sure pops!

I’ve been following you and Capt’n Eddie for about two years now. About a year ago I finally decided to get my own lathe and started to play with it. I cannot thank you enough for inspiring me to take on lathe work as a hobby!

Best wishes
