Hackberry & Blue Calcite Inlay Bowl #529

Piece #529 – Hackberry & Calcite – 11″┬áby 4.5″

 

The Hackberry for this bowl came from Beverly Hills, FL. It had been drying for about seven years in an outdoor storage shed. I paid $20 for the bowl blank because I love Hackberry and had none. When I lived in Georgetown, KY (2014) I was given a whole truckload of beautiful, fresh cut Hackberry. I spent two days cutting it into beautiful, large bowl blanks. I had about 12. I waxed up the ends and put it outside in my storage shed and started counting the months until I could use it. The coming winter was the coldest for that area in recent history. Come spring I went out to check my stock and all of it had cracked beyond use. I guess the moister froze and expanded it. I had to haul it all to the landfill. It was a sad day.
