Woodturnings: Siberian elm wood turned bowl
Wave Bowl
Siberian Elm

Finished in February, 2005. If turned upside-down, one will see how this bowl got its name. It was created from a Siberian elm tree that was harvested from our back yard. The Siberian elm, Ulmus pumila, (colloquially called "Chinese elm" in North Dakota) is a blight-resistant stately tree that was often planted to replace the hundreds of thousands of beautiful American elms that succumbed to Dutch Elm disease all across the country. The strongly-grained wood is relatively light in weight for a hardwood and is a deep, rich cafe-au-lait color. Finished with Tung Oil and Carnauba Wax. Suitable for use as salad or fruit bowl, the finish on this piece can be maintained by applying a light coating of mineral oil once or twice a year.
