The wood for this bowl came from a friend who lives nearby. When someone gives me a bunch of wood, I like to make them something from it. In this case, I gave her a choice of a bowl soon but that may warp a little and a bowl that would not warp but that would take much longer to make. She chose a bowl now.
This bowl is from green or wet cherry from her back yard. It is over six inches tall and about 5 inches in diameter. It is finished with walnut oil. Since it is still very wet, I told here to keep it in a grocery store paper bag for several weeks.
She’s happy with the bowl. I just hope it does not crack.
