Todays bowl a day (or platter, or?

Here's todays installment. Figured out why I don't do platters that often...can't seem to get the hang of a good rim. Call this a platter, call it a bowl, call it whatever you want. Elm with a little spalting. 9.5 inches diameter and 1.5 inches at the tallest spot.

Looks cool. Different. Maybe a pie plate.

When it's rustic......it's rustic

very nice sdf love the shine on the first pic. I also really enjoy the idea of a bowl a day. I just might have to snag that practice and give it a whirl. A question- is all your stock dry when you turn it? or do you turn wet as well?

Bond, right now I turn mostly dry wood. I have a source for cheap kiln dried wood. Nearby furniture store that specializes in slab tables, desks, benches, etc. My guy saves cut off ends and edges in a variety of species. I've gotten walnut(black and claro), maple, elm, sycamore, madrone, Chinese elm, and more. Its usually 2.5-3.5 inches thick and can be a variety of shapes. He looks for pieces with spalting, figure or interesting color for me. All the wood they use is salvaged from storm damage, city construction projects and the like.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Probably through the weekend and then I'll get bored and do something else. ;-)
