natural edge bowls

Bowls are open shapes, with the largest diameter defining the opening. I turn a natural edge bowl by leaving the outer bark intact. These pieces are challenging to turn, because the cut is interrupted as the bowl rotates. Sanding the interior can rap knuckles! The bark is fragile, so the wall thickness is heavier than a smooth edge bowl. Treat gently!
