Default Two more turnings

I just added the third canister I was working on, and a rowan salad bowl
to the album at:
https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...l=3 75941ede5

I'll post them in a.b.p.w as well.

Had a nice relaxing day in the shop. So much so that I forgot all about
eating lunch!

Turned a walnut burl closed form, with a rowan lid. The lid has some
nice fiddleback figure in it. The finish is drying now. Hope to post
some photos later in the week.

The canisters all look really good, and I like a sturdy bowl. I am
working my way through some nice sycamore but never saw any rowan in
person.

Sycamore is nice. I'm not sure what I have laying around right now but
if I can find some rowan blanks would you be interested in a swap?

Outside we have 2' of snow so finding any there isn't too likely but I
may have some smaller pieces in the shop, I'm not too sure - I'll have
to look around but there may be something out there.

Rowan is a common decorative tree up here. Don't know about where you
are. It has bright red berries in late summer and is a really pretty
tree when they come out. Unfortunately, it's a very wet tree so usually
suffers from heart rot when the tree gets to any size. But there's
always some sound wood in it...

Sure, a swap sounds good. I've got loads of smaller blanks and only
Sweetgum, Sycamore and cedar in larger blanks. I turn on an expanding
bowl chuck, so all my blanks have the dovetail recess and are dry
enough to turn.
