Project #5 - Natural Edge Firewood Bowl (Part 1)

I had seen an interesting style of bowl recently, and I thought I would give it a try. It required that the piece of wood that I use must still have its bark.

I found a piece of wood in our stack of firewood, so I am not sure what type of wood it was. It came from a tree in our garden somewhere that we had trimmed back a while ago.

In the picture above, you can see the patch where I have removed a strip of the bark. I had to trim the wood down in size a little, and then mount it on the lathe.

I turned the outside shape first.
