Woodturning: A log to a bowl

Today’s project shows how you take a log and make a bowl. Colorado received a lot of snow during the winter of 2018 which resulted in a lot of avalanches. While on a camping trip to the Telluride, CO area last summer, I came across a lot of logs on the side of the road from crews clearing the fallen trees. I came home with a lot of Aspen and Cottonwood logs. This particular log really had me interested when I picked it up. I figured with all the limbs and crotch, there had to be some nice figure in there. I had never turned Aspen so I didn’t know what to expect. I was very happy with what I saw!

I hope you enjoy this video. Please let me know if there is a project you’d like to see me make and I will do my best to do it. Thank you for all the support you have shown me and the channel!

Psalms 128:1-2 (NIV)
Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in obedience to him. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
