Salvaging Elm

A couple of weeks ago an Elm tree blew down in my neighbors yard.  As we cleaned up the debris my thoughts were about wooden bowls.  I had never turned Elm, so off to the computer I went.  My searches suggested that it was a fairly good wood for turning so I decided to give it a spin. (That's punny)   Elm does turn well and as it turns (punny again) out, it is absolutely beautiful wood.  Here are some pictures of the vessel through-out  the process.  Visit  The Bowl Store to see this one and more Elm coming soon.  Also keep up with my turning on Facebook.

I also have my turnings on ETSY.
