Trough DIY Trencher Bowl

We decided to make another trough(aka trencher bowls). There are so many possible shapes for these troughs, this one turned out very different from the first one we made.

The bowl blanks come from the pile in the yard. A mixture of spruce, fir, tamarack, etc.

The bolt (short log) of wood is then split to whatever thickness of bowl we are wanting to make. After some work in shaping the bowl, its handles and hollowing out, this is the result.
