I made this bowl for my 94 year old grandmother. She has limited eye sight and has only seen my work through pictures. I get to hand deliver her my craft this time.
I used Walnut, Oak, and Madrone. All the wood I use is harvested from standing dead trees here in Oregon. Home milled and air cured.

  • We bet she loved receiving this!

    • I’m sure she will! She lives out of state so we need to plan a trip to see her.

  • That is incredible.   The glue up alone must have been a challenge.

    • Thank you! The glue up is actually fairly easy because it is a flat surface. Cutting the rings correctly and turning it are the stressful processes. Trying to “see” the final outcome from a flat to a semi sphere is definitely the most challenging part of the whole process.
