This piece of elm has been underfoot in my shop for several months. Another club member harvested it some unknown time ago and sealed the ends with latex paint. It feels dry.
After rounding, I parted off the top two inches of wood to serve as the lid. Making a lidded bowl is essentially two projects in one: the base bowl and the lid bowl plus a abbreviated finial aka a knob.
My lidded bowl set is about 5 inches in height and 9 inches in diameter finished with walnut oil. The knob is walnut.
