We have lots of wood fairies in our life that bring us gifts. Robert Smythe was kind enough to grab this particular wood from the side of the road on his way home from work. These Spalted Poplar Bowls were turned form a fallen tree on Rose Valley Road in Media, PA and and finished with Betty’s Board Butter (beeswax & food safe mineral oil).
Fissure (photos 9-12). We originally turned this poplar bowl in 2008. It cracked while drying so it sat unfinished in our firewood pile. In 2019 we rediscovered the bowl, finally finished it, and sewed the crack with wire for fun. This poplar bowl was turned from a fallen tree in Lancaster, PA. Approximately 10-10.25” in diameter x 3'“ deep.
