Day 99: Olive II
I spent the afternoon cutting up the olive log my friend dropped off on Monday night. The trunk was very irregularly shaped and I ended up cutting quite a bit of it into smaller pieces and getting rid of some of the sap wood. There was a nice crotch at the top and I should get a couple of nice bowl out of that and the next section down.
I did take the time to turn a small bowl from one of the pieces. It's very green and I was just messing around so I didn't bother to sand the inside.
Tool marks are evident on the inside. I may take it back out and put it on a vacuum chuck, to sand and finish the inside. I haven't decided yet.
