Turned wooden bowls for sale

I make more bowls than I can use or give as gifts. About this time of
year I have a surplus and would like to sell a few.

Here are two that are worthy of inmates consideration.

Spalted maple bowl with natural edge and single crotch flamed figure.
Bowl is 11" diameter and 5" of rise on tallest part of natural edge.
Wall thickness is 1/4"

This bowl is 50.00 + shipping - Priority mail, well packed, insured, signature
required.





Bottom



This bowl is from same log but has a double crotch flamed figure.
Bowl is 11" diameter and 4" of rise on highest part of natural edge.
Wall thickness is 1/2"






Bottom




This bowl is 60.00 + shipping. I will sell both for 100.00 as they are a set
of sorts, both from same log. I planted this tree 25 years ago and it grew
too big, shaded too much of the rock garden so I cut it down. It had a
lot of spalting inside and has great figure.

Thank you for looking,
flyrod

wish you were closer

I have some box elder with the red 'veins' in it I cut down a couple weeks ago (and sealed the ends) and a bunch more to cut down. Trying to connect with local woodworkers instead of just turning it into firewood.

Beautiful bowls you have there!

I wish you were closer as well. Your box elder will make some stunning
bowls. I have seen several that are gorgeous.

Cut it into lengths equal to the diameter, you can never turn larger than
log diameter. Seal the ends as you have done. For turnings I then slab the
log ( lay it down and rip with the grain, not on end ). The thickness you
cut your slabs will be bowl height. Then cut round on band saw, seal
circumference and wait.

I would like some of your boxelder as I have not turned that wood. If you
can process down to reasonable size, I will purchase a few pieces to try.

I have thought about selling bowl blanks, I have hundreds. Shipping is
a little expensive for large pieces but still. I just got 5 cord grapple load
of wood and while cutting firewood, found a few pieces I can't bring
myself to burn. Some ambrosia maple ( 16" long 2' diameter log ) some
nice flamed oak crotches, and some nice beech. I am going to turn some
beech green as can be and make thin walls so it will distort all to hell
when it dries.

Contact local woodworking guild or turners clubs and associations. You
can probably sell logs, bowl blanks or whatever level of processing you
want to do.

Save me a few pieces to turn. I can turn pieces for you as payment for
blanks.

Stay in touch please.

Thanks to advrider

I will send 10% of any sale to advrider starting now.

An expansion of artisans work for sale here benefits all. There are many
here more talanted than I. I would buy some of the things I have
seen in "Show us something you made" thread for gifts. Huge talent pool
on this site.

God knows how hard it is to buy presents for anyone of age. I have
made all of my Christmas presents for 20 years. It is a part of me I am
giving away, so much more personal.

Heartfelt thanks,

flyrod

Great info...

We go to Quechee, VT every spring for two weeks. Maybe I can deliver some to you - I can wait until then to cut down some trees. I could even take photo's and you could tell me where to cut (both trees have crotches/etc).

I'll be towing the camper so plenty of space to bring it. I'll pm you this evening, would like to see what you think of the red veins.

MGB is making me giddy

It is always amazing to see what is inside a log, looking forward to
pictures. Post them here so others can see as well.

Some of the box elder is very dramatic. You may find an audience on
here for some of the wood.

Not native to NH so I don't see it much here.

Hey flyrod, would you ship internationally?
I kinda really like the look of those bowls.

International

Schussboelie,

I will. I have shipped to Canada in my real job. I think just need to do
customs paperwork and send it.

I will send you a pm.

Some of the pieces before I coated the ends and put them in the shed. Freshly cut.
