Locust Bowl *PIC*

>The Locust is from a Golf Course that had Ice damage early this year. Might be a honey locust type not sure, at least the small log had no hugh spikes grown out. Size 4" x 6" 3/16" thick. I would guess moisture content at 50%. Wraping was very little, I think that is because the piths and knots are below the top edge. To reduce splitting, after shaping the outside; a coat of Deft was put on and the knots were then Super glued. I did the same on the inside. After turning between centers a tenon was made for the Talon Chuck. Button jaws held the rim for turning the bottom. This is a small size project and the turning was fast & easy. I only put Deft on it and let if set for approx. 6 weeks, before 3 coats of Tung Oil Finish. I set it out to watch, if the piths split or like look like they might. Repairs or made with sawdust & super glue and/or crushed Corian. The bowl was a gift for my daughter's family and nothing special for pictures were done.
