Elm Bowl Day One


First day for this work, a bowl made by chinese elm, a beautiful tree gow up close to Appennino Mountain, around 40 years ago, been cut for some reason unknow to me.
His destination was domestic fire, i could take just one cuttedTree, the other 4 has gone.

Has fantastic colors, showing typical fiber elm....
Couldn't have really good finish close rings protruding,
but line came out i like a lot,
have a lot of sanding, in both direction
but no way to clean the surface very fine, Wood are Not so dry..
I reised his hair,
and difficolt clean after this deep tears...even few, they show like gold in a swamp..
i really like this line!
Finish Outside with Wax....








Cheers..
