More cherry wood milling, and more puppy dog walkin.
Milling a fallen Cherry Tree with the Echo 20” 54.1cc and an Alaskan Chainsaw Mill (bit small for a chainsaw mill but it got the job done!)
The best thing about winter
Found a beautiful fallen spalted maple on the trail behind my house.
Should be able to get 5 or 6 bowls out of it!
6 Inch natural edge hemlock bowl with a petoskey stone I found in the middle
Sometimes we forget how beautiful the place we call home is.
7 Inch natural edge hemlock bowl
I found there to be a huge knot/branch in the slab I cut this week, the other side of this branch can be seen in the 5 inch hemlock bowl from Jan. 4th. (bowl #4).
The knot is smooth as silk, we’ll see how this one dries, i’m too scared to stick it in the oven in case it breaks apart.
8 Inch partial natural edge hemlock bowl
Pretty large water stain around the bottom, but the bark came out beautifully, ended up having to apply a little bit of black epoxy to the cracked areas after a few hours in the oven at 175F. I sanded it down to 600 and I think the grain looks great.
5 Inch hemlock bowl
Branches were tough to get around, but after I sanded it down to 600 the grain looked great.
Still need help with the bottom though.
