Shaping green wood on a lathe is invigorating, messy, and lots of fun. The sound that sharp tools make as they slice off long shavings is addicting. Creating bowls out of wet wood is unpredictable, and the bowls change shape as they lose moisture.
Once the bowls are dry, I gently sand them, level the bottoms, and finish with walnut oil.
I love that my work is durable, full of character, and warms the home.
