Turning a Natural Edge Bowl


A natural edge bowl is one where the rim of the bowl utilizes the wood in its natural state. The rim of a natural edge bowl will have an undulating shape, flowing with the natural surface characteristics of the log, and typically will have two high points and two low points due to the curvature of the log section from which the bowl is turned.

The piece shown in this Inspiration Series video was made of Silver Maple.
