Pepper Burl bowl

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Pepper Burl bowlI received this wood from a lumber mill friend here in California. It is off of a huge pepper tree covered in Burl. My friend gave me 2 Burl to turn. The first 3 pics is the largest of the 2 and was a lot of work to turn. The Burl was very porous and had quite a few holes. I ended up filling it with about 200grams of epoxy to ensure it wouldn't come apart. I used shellack to finish the piece wet sanding to about 400 or 600 grit to ensure the epoxy had at least a decent finish. The bowl ended up being 11 in diameter.
The second 3 pics are of the second bowl. You will see a lot more epoxy in it since there was a hole in it and I didn't want to sacrifice any of the wood. Learned a lot of epoxy lessons on this bowl. It was about 6 in diameter. I gave this bowl to my friend as a gift and thanks for giving the wood.

More bowls

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


More bowls2 more bowls. The first is an oak live edge bowl. I rescued this wood from someone that wanted to burn it. It's approximately 6.5 across. I sanded to 400 grit then used a is abrasive paste to finish. The paste really does work well on smooth bowls. I'm really happy with how it turned out.
The second bowl is a winged bowl made from eucalyptus. Very dense wood and hard on tools but still fun to turn and was going to be burned otherwise so hey give it another life. The bowl was finished with shellack.

Three Juniper Bowls

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Three Juniper BowlsOnce upon a time, I had a log….a juniper log, to be exact.Slicing out the center on a bandsaw sawmill for a fireplace mantle left a lot of waste, or at least what I thought was going to be waste. The log was 11 feet long. That left two slices off the top and bottom of the center piece that were also 11 feet long. I cut them with my chainsaw in order to be easier to handle. Lo and behold, the idea for bowls came to be.There were enough lengths for the three bowls shown plus four more slabs waiting to be carved and shaped into similar, but different, bowls.The three bowls above are actually my very first commissioned work. Usually, I finish a piece and offer it for sale. When this client purchased two pieces I had on hand, they decided to commission me for two more. I made three in order to allow them to choose the two they like best, although I hope they take all three.This was also an experiment, of sorts, because the client wanted me to tone down the red of the juniper heartwood. In order to do that, a decision had to be made that would also give the sapwood a different color, as well. Even though I didn't know how it would turn out, I chose light walnut as the stain to use, and am pleased with the results.Thanks for looking.TZH
