Black Walnut

Black Walnut

These bowls and the vase are made of Black Walnut. There's a bit of a story to the shape of the bowl on the right. It had what appeared to be a small crack about midway up the bowl after wet turning it. I decided to try and take the crack out. For awhile I didn't think I would make it but finally got rid of the last of the crack and still had a thin 1/8" left.

Spalted Poplar Lamp

Many wood turners don't like working with poplar. I can understand that because many times it's punky making it hard to work with. This may be true but if you're willing to spend the time to fix the punkiness, the wood can be very beautiful.

Maple Burl End Table

Maple Burl End Table

The top is a 2" slice out of a Maple Burl and the base is a Cedar stump that had been left out in the rain. When the bark was peeled off, the red stains were left on the wood.

Fruit Bowls

The two bowls on the left are Black Cherry from my own bush and the far right bowl is Box Elder. I always used to call it Manitoba Maple. Oh well.

Burls

Burls

The left hand bowl is a Poplar Burl while the other two are Cedar Burls. The one in the middle turned into a real challenge as I decided to hand sand the outside rather than turn it. About 25 hours later I was done! Whew!!
