In woodturning club, this month's demo was making a natural edge bowl. Here is my try at that project.

I scavenged two burled spruce logs but I really don't know what to do with them. I use mostly hand tools, have skill saw for rough cuts and belt sander. The rest is all chisels and planes.

Anything suggestions what to do with these? They're ... large.
When life knocks you flat on your face roll over and look at the stars.

I just finished a 6 hole flute, inspired by traditional native american design. This is tuned to G4. It was a pretty good challenge to me, getting it all to fit well, sound accurately and be in tune. I loved it!

@Sippy, do you prefer flatwork, or carving?
My guess for a good use is furniture, so what are you needing?
Split it for boards-use a froe.

Soft basswood, to absorb water from breath, and south american hardwoods for the joins.

I hope you rediscover your passion, but whatever you do is awesome. Being in touch with the creator is the most important thing, whatever the mechanism.

I found this impressive. "Can you say voilà?"

Oh wowwie!
That is amazing to me, real talent and eye to detail.
Thank you for sharing.
That fireplace mantle looks like a piece of candy or something. I can imagine that silky stone when it is warm.
That place is made for powder pouf wigs and fancy dress.

Some views of how it will look. Stone will be inlayed where the water is flowing all the way down to the fence line.
