an anniversary bowl
There aren't any traditional gifts listed for a 16th wedding anniversary, but the modern lists tag it as "silver hollow-ware". One of my gifts was a log from the neighbour's wood-pile -- he'd taken down a silver birch after a storm last autumn.
Today I split it and cut out a couple of blanks from one half -- then proceeded to turn it hollow! Aside from making the tenon for the chuck (which I did with a parting tool), it was all done with a Penn State (Benjamin's Best) 1/2" bowl gouge.
