    Curly Bowl

    I was told this was Chinese elm that I rough turned last year.

    Lots of curl and crazy grain patterns (I kept thinking there was tear out but it felt smooth - I probably sanded three times longer than I needed to trying to get rid of it but itís just the funny grain). Just over 16Ē in diameter. Finished with medium walnut Watco Danish oil to pop the curl.

    I still have the cored centers to finish turn - I think itís going to make a beautiful set.

    Comments and critique welcome.

    Thanks Brian - here is the bottom. Just a simple and subtle curve to the foot.
