Black Locust

This is the wood I'm going to be playing around with in the near future. I've been cutting BL firewood the last couple of days and have salvaged a couple of bowl blanks from the wood. All I've done so far is just cut a half round off each side and then seal the ends. I'll cut actual blanks and the reseal once I get my bandsaw fixed. There's a time limit on this firewood, so I cut a lot more blanks and squares later.
My question is, does anyone have any projects they have made out of Black Locust that wouldn't mind sharing pictures with me?

Thanks

my web site (link below my name) shows several BL bowls at the bottom of the BL page ("locust, black")

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Man phinds....your site is as close to wood ****ography as I think I've ever seen. It's GREAT! I have to be careful looking at it too much or the wife gets jealous.

Thanks. After all the massive amounts of time I've put into it over the years, I can say without any need for false modesty that it's a jaw dropper all right. It's what I wanted to find when I first started looking at exotic woods on the internet.

My unposted backlog of wood pics is now at 6,000, so there's more to come.

Black Locust is good for bows too. save a straight stave or two... 70-72" might have to get intouch with you for em

The true test of any wood worker worth their salt is the ability to convert Millimeters into Inches in ones head. Now someone will need to market a converting calculator called Your Head....
