Burl bowl

If that bowl is from the burl that you just cut up and it is at all wet I would turn the bowl so that they get end grain sealer on them and let them dry for a year first then return when dry. really hard to sell wet wood without expecting problems.

Hi Jerry no this bowl is from some wood I got last year it was drying for months before I worked it I try not to work them until they are at 10% or less.I hope the new wood is half as nice as this stuff.

Cost ?

We stop at a West Virginia store a couple of times a year as we travel South. The store (Tamarack) has only WV. made for sale. There are some beautiful turnings and a bowl 14" in diameter there would be in the $200 + range. Maybe a bit more because it is burl.

I've purchased a number of 5-8" diameter bowls of domestic woods for $80-140 area.

Hope this helps.
