As I say all the time, I’ll turn anything and when a friend brought me a piece of persimmon tree I thought, why not. Well, it’s not for everyone is it? I found a lot of knots and voids — some going all the way though. I had turned this several weeks ago an left it sitting on my bench to be thrown away. I rechucked it this weekend to practice turning a thin bowl since my last one turned out just fine. No problems with the thinness — just a problem with the look. But if everyone judged on looks I would probably still be single.
