View Full Version : firewood bowl

found this root ball on the firewood pile it's spotted gum or stringy bark.
the bowl ended up 135 mm diameter 65mm deep and a wall thickness of 4 to 5 mm. I had to treat part of it with CA as it had some dry rot it turned ok!

I trust the other piece there will get the same treatment?

I have 2 ideas 1 leave it as is for display purposes or 2 turn another bowl but with a tennon and join them together!?

There is a fair amount of colour difference in the turned bowl. If it was me I would make another bowl.

Always gems to be found in the firewood pile.

I like the idea of turning another the same and joining the two, tenon to recess.
Like a great, big yo-yo. :D

It would make for a very distinctive-looking bowl.

Lovely piece of timber and well turned too. :2tsup:. Hope you don't mind but instead of a recess in the bottom, I would like to see the outside profile maintained and a small foot on the bottom.
