Backyard bowls, plus...

It cooled off for a day or two, so's I went hiking out back to check on some OLD, downed trees...

First is what I suspected was pecan, 'til I cut into it...
Looks ALOT like hackberry I've turned before, but am unsure.
Maybe sycamore..?
Been down for many years, and the bugs find it delicious!

Pic of the remaining cookie, and a QS bowl turned from it...
Still finishing, due to it sucking up every thing I put on it!

Also a pecan limb bowl...

I'll go out and get some more when my chainsaw parts arrive.

And a piece of staghorn sumac(thanks phinds!)...
Thanks for looking!

p






...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?
