    Elm

    I have moved this piece of elm around for over 10 years. Finally got around to coring it. The wine & bread are for scale.
    For the last ten or so years I thought it was maple. I sent a small piece off to be identified and it came back elm.

    I think elm is a much under appreciated wood for turning. I helped a guy cut up an elm tree and ended up with 20 or so nice burls and some 30 inch cross sections. I cut out the pith, sealed the end grain and will be turning it here in a couple of months. What I have once turned so far is beautiful wood.

    Nice job Kevin. I would think you'd compliment the fine work yoju have done with a little better wine than "2 Buck Chuck"!!!!

    A pretty set for sure. When I see a nested set like that it makes me want to get coring equipment. Looks like that piece has some eyes in it (eyes as in birdseye maple) -- I didn't know that occurred in elm.

    Best,

    Dave

    Haha. I was just thinking the same thing about the $2 buck Chuck. Nice bowls though.

    Thanks, for the kind words. I used the wine bottle to show the size of the bowl.
    I know everyone knows exactly the size of Two Buck Chuck.
