so my dad gave me a couple slabs of cherry a few yrs ago one of them cracked almost from end to end so i didnt know what to do with it.so i finally decided to cut it into bowl or platter blanks as in the picture below i have only made one bowl so far but you can see what i started with and 1 finished product
im kinda proud of how well it turned out

Wow, that's gorgeous. I've never worked in cherry before, but it looks awesome. Gonna have to put cherry on the "to do" list.
Great work.
Ken

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

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

Very nice Robert,
Hard to believe that old plank can turn into two beautiful bowls. Cherry is always nice, but those are deluxe pieces, nice figure. What did you do for a finish?

Robert, these look very nice. I like the color and grain of cherry. That is one of the nice things about turning. We can take chunk of wood out of the burn pile and make a very nice turning from it. I have turned some nice bowls from scrap left over from my flat work days. None of that wood could have been used for furniture for one reason or another.
Keep up the good work. Have fun.
