The above are eight turned pieces from a single 24″ section of a 24″ diameter white oak from Boaz, Kansas. The tree fell over and across the Van Horn Branch Creek about 10 years ago- We finally pulled the log out 2 years ago, and it has laid in my log pile since then, although I did mill a portion of it. The heart wood is still green, so these bowls were turned green and allowed to warp as they dried. Ultimately all the pieces were exposed to ammonia vapors (fumed) which reacted to the tannins in the wood, darkening the surfaces.

A slew of recent additions to our Etsy storefront are pictured below. There are prints, bowls, handmade goat milk soap with free shipping and a few paintings, even. Please click on the green BaumWerk sign immediately below to visit the store. Thank you!
Obed Edom, in the form of a 12″ x 18″ linocut, is for sale on our Etsy Store finally. Right now, I have 5 impressions available. Also posted there, are a few bowls which I believe are worthy of consideration. Thanks everyone for your support, encouragement and attention. If you missed last week’s post, please give it a look. I thought it was a good one, but it sort of went under the radar- or perhaps it wasn’t as nice as I fancied.
