Russian Olive Crotch Bowl *PIC*

tek-Brunswick, Ohio
>I turned this from a forked log of Russian Olive. It is 11 1/2" long by 11 1/2" Wide at the widest point. The wings have two natural edges and the ends are what are left of the chainsaw cuts. The inner bowl is 4 1/4" in diameter and 3 1/8" deep. I had to fight ring shake on this piece and work with the void in the bowl. You can best see the ring shake as the black lines on the outside of the bowl. The wings warped a little as I turned the piece, so they vary in thickness from about 5/16" to 3/16" thick. The bowl is about 1/8" thick. Comments welcome.
