From a Pot to a Bowl
Furnished content.

From a Pot to a BowlThis project started with a Texas Ebony crotch sent to me by Mesquiteman99 to see what I could do with it. I cut off the long part of the crotch branch and tested it to see how it turned . I was going to make a pot that I hollowed from the bottom and then glued in a mesquite bottom. I found the wood to be brittle and “chippy”....the chips were like coffee grounds. It was okay until I tried to turn the top of the pot. One cut and it exploded so I turned it down to a small bowl (3 1/2” x 1 1/2” high with a .050” wall) and with a mesquite bottom. If the pot would have survived, the bottom would not show.It is finished with satin enamel.I have split the rest of the crotch in half through the pith and will soak it in black epoxy before making the piece I had planned for it.Cheers, Jim
