Hard to find time to do all my favorite things and school. I swear it took me 3 weeks to sand and finish this sweet gum bowl. But hey, better late than never right? #woodturning #woodturner #wood #art #finewoodworking #woods #diy #lathe #woodcraft #eagleriver #alaska #alaskawoodworking #reusable #woodbowl #handmade #woodisgood #woodart #ecofriendly #renewableresource #farnorthwoodworks

A few more finishing touches on this birch burl bowl and it will be all done! I always love seeing the grain pattern inside of these burls. #woodturning #woodturner #wood #art #finewoodworking #woods #diy #lathe #woodcraft #eagleriver #alaska #alaskawoodworking #woodbowl #reusable #handmade #woodisgood #woodart #buyhandmade #farnorthwoodworks

Playing around with some resin in this cracked bowl I almost got rid of. Fun! ๐Ÿ˜บ #woodturning #woodturner #wood #art #finewoodworking #woods #diy #lathe #woodcraft #eagleriver #alaska #alaskawoodworking #woodbowl #handmade #woodisgood #woodart #buyhandmade #farnorthwoodworks

Trying to rough out a nesting set from this large black walnut blank I picked up in Wisconsin. Using the Mcnaughton system. The middle one got real thin on the bottom, hopefully it can still be used. Tricky stuff, but just have to practice, practice, and practice. #woodturning #woodturner #wood #art #finewoodworking #woods #diy #lathe #woodcraft #eagleriver #alaska #alaskawoodworking #woodbowl #handmade #woodisgood #woodart #farnorthwoodworks

The wod hunting goes well back in #wisconsin. I really miss the variety of species here. In AK we deal mainly in Birch, which of course is nice, but boy am I excited to get some blanks of this black walnut back up with me. Measures 20 inches at the crotch. #woodturning #woodturner #wood #art #finewoodworking #woods #diy #lathe #woodcraft #eagleriver #alaska #alaskawoodworking #woodbowl #handmade #woodisgood #woodart #farnorthwoodworks

Prepping some bowl blanks before I head off to #wisconsin to visit family (and to find more wood ๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿ˜) Not sure what to do with the piece on top though. It has some really punky spots but is very pretty. Maybe I'll find someone to stabilize it when it dries.๐Ÿค” #woodturning #woodturner #wood #art #finewoodworking #woods #diy #lathe #woodcraft #eagleriver #alaska #alaskawoodworking #woodbowl #handmade #woodisgood #woodart #farnorthwoodworks

Working this piece of birch. Has some nice spalting, but it has some really soft punky spots. We will see how it turns out! ๐Ÿค“ #woodworking #woodturning #woodturner #wood #art #finewoodworking #woods #diy #lathe #woodcraft #eagleriver #alaska #alaskawoodworking #woodbowl #handmade #woodisgood #woodart #farnorthwoodworks

Just finished up this spalted sweet gum bowl. Need to find me some more as it was a pleasure to work with. Had a hard time drying it, but it worked out ok in the end ๐Ÿป What methods do you like to use to dry your bowls? Always learning! ๐Ÿ“– #woodworking #woodturning #woodturner #wood #art #finewoodworking #woods #diy #lathe #woodcraft #eagleriver #alaska #alaskawoodworking #woodbowl #handmade #woodisgood #woodart

Yarn bowls and picture frames. Trying to mix things up a bit. The yarn bowl is made of elm and the frame is made of walnut. #woodworking #woodturning #woodturner #wood #art #finewoodworking #woods #diy #lathe #woodcraft #eagleriver #alaska #alaskawoodworking #woodbowl #handmade #yarnbowl #knitting #pictureframe #photooftheday #moose #woodisgood #woodart

Practicing with the skew. One moment everything is going so well and I think I'm getting the hang of it, then BAM, catch! ๐ŸคฏI didnt think it was possible to have that many small heart attacks in one day! Practice practice ๐Ÿง๐Ÿ“– #woodworking #woodturning #woodturner #wood #art #finewoodworking #woods #diy #lathe #woodcraft #eagleriver #alaska #alaskawoodworking #handmade

Just finished this live edge birch bowl today. It came from some fire wood I cut up a couple years ago. Glad I didnt burn it! #woodworking #woodturning #woodturner #wood #art #finewoodworking #woods #diy #lathe #woodcraft #eagleriver #alaska #alaskawoodworking #woodbowl #handmade #buyhandmade

This made up from some scraps of a board that didnt work out. It has some dings and blemishes... so I figure it's a perfect opportunity to test my product! Hmm, what abuse should I put this through? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ˆ #woodworking #wood #finewoodworking #woods #diy #woodcraft #eagleriver #alaska #alaskawoodworking #handmade #madeinusa #cuttingboard #cheeseboard #butcherblock #art
