    Snowdrop tree

    A simple little bowl in a wood that was most pleasing to turn. The bowl is 4" x 2 1/4" and is made from the wood of the Snowdrop tree, (Halesia sp. ,possibly H. dipteria.)
    It was standing dead for a year but only felled yesterday.

    I can't decide whether to be a good example, or a horrible warning!

    I have a snowdrop tree in the garden. Mine is Halesia monticola, but I never knew that the timber would turn out as nice as in your bowl, which I really admire.
    I think that a branch or two may need pruning.

    Quick turnaround Neil,like the unusual lip angles,depth of the bowl from ornament to useful.

    Lovely little bowl Neil, from a wood I have never heard of. One learns something new each day.
