Tim, forester at Forest Land Improvement, found a living American Chestnut tree on his parents woodlot. This is a rare occurrence because the American Chestnut tree species was essentially wiped out by the Chestnut Blight. Tim harvested the tree before it died and gave me a section of the tree to turn. I made eight 6″ bowls from the piece that he gave me. I also got some pen blanks. I rough turned the bowls and they are currently drying in paper bags with their green shavings. Here are a few pictures of some of the bowls.
