After we unloaded the lumber for my painting projects I was inspired to make this gnarly tree bowl. The bowl is about eleven inches in diameter and about three inches deep. We had an electrician over yesterday and it won't be overly expensive to get the wiring done for a kiln so he's coming today for that. So it looks like I'll be getting a kiln after all.
Eastern red cedar, sycamore, and walnut. As we loaded the wood into my car I couldn't help thinking some of the pieces would make a beautiful natural edge table top. Who knows where this recent foray into wood will take me. I'll pull off the stack one piece at a time and set it up on saw horses and belt sand the pieces. Then I'll fine sand them. Next I'll stain them with a water based stain and then I'll paint on them. Of course today I'm wondering what I've gotten myself into. We shall see. Stay tuned for more details. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
