I applied myself and made a cedar bowl for my friend who gave me the fallen branch. I even found a finish for the wood that sealed it without hiding the cedar smell!
(A beeswax!) The bowl is 4" wide and 3" deep.
I gave the bowl to her and the little bowl and saucer to her son at church yesterday--they both held it up to their noses for a good smell! It's a bit washed out here, but the softness of the bark and the whole bowl feels good in the hands.
I do love working with wood--
