Honey locust bowl

At a meeting last year I acquired a couple of chunks of honey locust, which I cut in half and then rough turned (to about 1.25" thick) and then let dry that way for about nine months. I recently finish-turned one of them, which turned out pretty nicely, I think. It is about 9.25"D x 4"H.

Small birch bowl

I turned this small (6"D x 3.5"H) birch bowl from a piece of birch I won in a raffle at our last woodturners' meeting. It has some nice figure, some dramatic spalting, and a branch which grew out near what is now the bottom of the bowl.
