Live Oak Bark Edge Bowls
I was looking at a house for sale and noticed a fellow across the street using a power pruner to cut up a live oak trunk about 8" in diameter. "Ah Ha!" I thought, knowing I was running short of fresh turning stock. It turned out he was not cutting it up for firewood and was something of a woodturner himself, but was spending most of his time on other projects. A few minutes later it was in the back of my pickup and on its way home.
