Another nice-- but Gnarly art piece
Think this is from the last blank cut from one of my Hackberry logs. I was able(whew!) to do kind of a hollow form bowl. Hadn't intended to leave the bottom tenon but the inside structure dictated otherwise. ~ 8.5 x 4 ish. It ought to attract some attention at the next show/market days.
Had originally put it in the discard pile- after the original tenon self destructed--, but then figured a (safe) way to rechuck and reform the bottom.
Everyday--learning to liberate nice things from ordinary chunks of wood
and I like gnarly wood--outcome is always better than the start.
