This is a beautiful piece of Red Elm. There is much character in its natural coloring and grain pattern. A large bowl with much spalting, and the red-brown coloring from the heart wood of the red elm, or the proper name Slippery Elm. This bowl measures 13"W X 4-1/4"T. It has a food safe mineral oil finish. It would make a beautiful salad bowl. A lovely additon to any table or collection.

A few facts about the Slippery Elm Tree. The fibrous inner bark is a strong and durable fibre, which can be spun into thread, twine or rope. It can be used for bow strings, ropes, jewellery, clothing, snowshoe bindings, woven mats, and even some musical instruments. The wood is used for the hubs of wagon wheels, as it is very shock resistant owing to the interlocking grain. There are also many medicinal uses for the Red Elm (Slippery Elm).

The Red Elm is a native tree to Georgia and was locally grown. This particular tree had died, and had to be taken down. I only turn native or locally grown woods. Wood collected and destined for the lathe is from local trees (Northeast Ga. Area) that were felled due to wind, disease, or urban development. No tree is ever taken for the sole purpose of this craft.
