Shallow, Elongated Elm Bowl
This elm bowl was turned from wood from a different elm tree than the two bowls posted earlier today, and had its own interesting characteristics - principally that as it dried it went a good deal out-of-round, and therefore appears almost oval in shape; the rim is also a little "wavy." The bowl is ⅝" wider across the long diameter (9 ½") compared to the short one (8 ⅞"). It stands 2 ½" high at the rim. I also did a little more decorating on the bottom of the bowl than I typically do, as shown in the photos. This bowl is finished with several coats of Minwax Wipe-On Poly (Gloss).
