I got hold of some Lombardy Poplar wood the other month from a few trees that we pruned .
I started the bowl along with a smaller one and I have been waiting for a long time for this bowl to dry out before finishing it.
I finished the outside on the shave horse with the drawknife and my carving knife.
And here is the finished bowl, its turned out well.
Its got some wonderful grain in the handle and catches the light nicely as you move it.
