Over the last 8 days I have managed to turn these new wooden bowls from my rough turned stock. It’s eye candy to any wood lover as this assortment came from a giant pile of very large cut logs. Spalting occurs a lot in these huge log piles. Bowls are 5” to 15” in diameter and include Red Oak, Spalted Birch, Black Walnut, Honey Locust and Spalted Maple. Each has at least 2 coats of finish of them - some are completed with 4 coats. #spalting #spaltedbowls #woodturning #bowlturning #assortment #woodenbowls #hardwoodbowls #craftsmanship #jgwoodturninganddesign #johngillmoure #turnedbowls #shinybowls #beautifulwoodworking

Last December I picked up this mystery log which easily weighed 200 pounds. I learned it was Red Oak and being a difficult wood to dry I choose to leave this largest one out of my drying kiln. Last week it had a Moisture Content of 5%-9%. Size will end up being 15” x 7” This still requires final sanding, finishing and Buffing. There were six bowls that came from this log and all dried successfully. A big surprise for me. My first “real” oak bowl ends up being one of my largest sized bowls to date. #redoakbowl #bowlturning #woodturning #redoak #oakbowl #largebowl #woodenbowl #largewoodenbowl #craftsmanship #turnedbowl #johngillmoure #jgwoodturninganddesign

New Cutting Boards... finally completed using up all my overstock hardwood pieces. 95% Existing wood in shop + 5% purchased for enhancements. As a bowl turner none of this wood was going to end up in any bowl. So... introducing cutting boards to my inventory. The ones in the pile still need edging and fine sanding. All require mineral oil finishing. “Always use what you have before buying new” and “ Never ever make one of anything” #cuttingboards #endgraincuttingboards #cheeseplatters #servingtrays #abundance #segmentedwoodworking #craftsmanship #woodworking #jgwoodturninganddesign.com #johngillmoure
