This 19" diameter bowl is made from a maple tree that blew down last spring in the park across from the house. Blair turned it green so it's still quite wet and unstable. He has applied several coats of quick-dry finish on the bowl to prevent warping and cracking. He will wait several months before he declares it a success. The bowl is setting on a mound of its own shavings. Since it started as a 100+ lb. chunk of wood, there were heaps of shavings in the shop.
