Below is a gallery documenting the process of carving a large bowl from 1/2 of a cottonwood log.
A few bowl turning pictures as I have been producing for a part in a few shows this fall.
Below is a stack including walnut, persimmon, ash, cypress and two elm species.
A few more added from above on the workbench, the same species as above with the addition of a few crab-apple.
Hollowing a large cypress bowl on the lathe using a 1/2 bowl gouge.
A few blow-ups from experimenting with the grind on a smaller bowl gouge.
