Baltimore Area Turners. He turned this bowl (vessel might be a better word for it) at the bowl turning party on that very hot day in July (see Aug 1, 2010 blog post). #41 has some very distinctive red markings in the wood that according to Bob, "give the bowl some character". Thanks for the photo Bob. For more information about the Baltimore Area Turners and other woodturning clubs in the area, visit the Links Page on our website or the American Association of Woodturning website.

Many of you have been curious about The Tree. Well, here's a photo of the original pine tree from Ed & Linda's house in Forest Hill, Maryland . The tree was planted in 1985. It had been the family Christmas tree that season and after the holidays, it was planted near (as it turns out, a bit too near) their house. This photo was taken the day tree was cut down. Ed's looking through his family albums for us to see if he can find a photo of the tree as it looked on Christmas morning in 1984.

Sue sent us a photo of Bowl #52 turned in the shop on the very hot afternoon of July 24th. Nice finishing job, Sue! We have a beginning bowl turning class scheduled for Saturday, October 23rd and one on Sunday, November 21st. Those will probably be the last few opportunities for new turners to be part of the for the One Tree, 100 Bowl Project. If you've take a bowl turning class with Mark, we have an open studio day set for October 9th and we'll have some pine bowl blanks ready to go. More about all of this on our website.
