Natural Edge Pear Bowl
This is a natural edge bowl turned in reverse. I could wax poetic about how it’s a dichotomy between the raw bark, cracked rim versus the well sanded and oiled wood but that all seems a bit over the top.
I’ve had this pear in my shop for a number of years. It was acquired from a co-workers house. He was getting rid of the tree and traded him a bowl for some logs. I’ve probably made about 4 or projects from this wood.
It’s great to work with and ages to a warm orange hue about 2-3 weeks after turning. For me, It’s just a cool looking bowl, and fun to make some wood shaving in the shop.
Approx 8.5″ inches in diameter and 5.5 inches deep.
