Where bowls come from *PIC*

Brian Simmons, Heflin, AL
>This piece is from a black walnut limb. A teacher at my kid's school commissioned me to turn her Christmas presents from some wood from the family farm. One of the limb pieces I had left became this bowl. Every time I would deliver one of the bowls that were destined to be a present the students would ask how I made them. Many of them could not understand where in the wood the bowl came from. I split the piece of wood and turned a bowl and finished it still attached to the log. I showed them where bowls come from. The bowl part is 5" in diameter and 2" deep. Overall dimensions are 8-3/4 x 7 x 4. I have given this to the teacher.
