Woodturner Mark Supik creates a solution for an empty tree pit in front of his Baltimore rowhouse.
Tuesday, July 29, 2014
Our woodturning shop in Baltimore often becomes the repository for local fallen trees. The choice ones become turned bowls, others find their way to the firewood pile. A white pine tree with a 12" diameter became the inspiration for this project. I cut the tree into blanks, mounted each one on my Oliver lathe, drilled a center hole and then over the past few months, turned each of them into a new shape.
