The album for the wooden bowls that I have turned is getting a bit unwieldy so I have decided to start organizing them by year starting with 2016. I make most of my bowls from locally sourced wood. The majority of it is from trees that were cut down for other reasons. The wood is often then given away as firewood but I collect it for my own use. The kind of wood that I use for my bowls is entirely dependent on the kind of wood I find.
In 2016 most of my wood finds were maple and oak. I had a number roughed out bowls from previous years though so in addition to those I had some wooden bowls made from cherry, black locust and chestnut.
