I liked the cherry bowl I gave away so much I had to make myself one. This one has more of an apple shape to complement the apple stem top. The lid was a piece of padauck I had been saving for a “special occasion” but the bowl actually asked me to use this. It is a snug fit on the lid. The bowl measures about 6″ in diameter and 6″ tall. The spindle is also cherry although it came from a well seasoned board while the bowl itself came out of a “lying log” from the woods. The shape actually emerged while cutting out the soft wood from exterior rot.
