Rimmed Elm Bowl

This bowl was turned from the same elm tree wood as the one in the previous post.  It has some interesting grain and color variation and several small knots.   In order not to lose any more depth than necessary I kept the pith in (nearest the rim) and it developed some radial cracks - as pith will usually do - which had to be glued.  (Naturally I didn't take any photos of that aspect.)  This bowl is 8" in diameter and 2 ¾" high.  It is also finished with Minwax Antique Oil Finish.
