Aspen Bowl from Cuchara, Colorado

Bob Hoffman Tree Treasure #20008

    •  Aspen tree wood has very little color to it if it is turned when green, so Bob Hoffman hunts for standing dead Aspens to harvest.  The prettiest bowls can be made from trees where the bark has fallen off, but the tree hasn't rotted.  Since the wood is already dry the bowls can be turned and finished without the waiting waiting for the drying time needed with other wood.  
    • 4 inches tall and 23 inches in circumference
