Bowl turning is new to me. It’s a lot like pen making, but because the original block is so large and still heavy from retaining moisture from the original tree… it presents its own set of challenges. That said, this bowl isn’t “show quality” by any means. Defects are displayed in photos. Here’s what you need to know.
- The indentation in the bottom has marks from the chuck (cannot be seen when bowl is upright)
- The inside is slightly rough and un-polished. It won’t scratch items inside the bowl.
- Olivewood is a species that “checks” or has small cracks that come from drying.
