A bunch of bowls

As I mentioned, since late summer, after getting my shop moved to Middleton, I've been doing some turning.   Here are some of the bowls I've done since then:

Spalted maple salad bowl - 11 3/4" x 4 1/4"  Finished with Mahoney's heat treated walnut oil.  I have had this blank for more than four years - collected it from a tree taken down by the city.

Natural-edged spalted birch bowl - 7 3/4" x 3 3/4"  Finished with General Finishes Wipe-on Urethane.  This wood came from a birch tree in our front yard.

Large butternut salad bowl - 12 1/2" x 3 1/2"  Finished with Mahoney's heat treated walnut oil.  This wood came from a raffle at Badger Woodturners.

Cherry burl bowl - 6" x 3 1/2"  Finished with Mahoney's heat treated walnut oil.  This bowl was turned from wood left in a pile by the city after it had cleared a small cluster of trees.

Apple bowl - 10 1/2" x 4 3/4"  Finished with Deft Clear Wood Finish.  This bowl was turned from the same apple tree trunk as the apple bowls pictured earlier in my blog.

Spalted Maple bowl - 11 1/4" x 4 3/4"  Finished with General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish.  Also from a trunk section I collected about four years ago.

Your talents are amazing!!!!
I've been working with wood for years but have never had the opportunity [or the desire] to try "turning."
I think seeing your "trophies" may have just tweeked the desire a bit.
Keep up the beautiful work and I'll be checking in from time to time.
