Managed to get into the workshop and finish this burr today.
Made from one of the chestnut burrs that I have, still two more to go. Finished with oil and measures 10 1/2" X 4".

C and C Welcome

Great capturing of the natural Flame Edge, it'll look good filled with holiday season nuts.

What is never evident when we see these pretty little burr bowls, is the care that goes into setting the burr correctly on the lathe at the beginning of the turning process, to ensure well balanced edge....which is one of the many things that I admire in this piece. Great little bowl.

Education is important, but wood turning is importanter
