Designers/Turners/Writers: Rex Burningham and Kip Christensen

We asked expert turners Rex Burningham and Kip Christensen of Utah to give us a blow-by-blow account on creating an eye-pleasing maple salad bowl set from green wood, and, boy, did they ever. Save bucks by using green wood from your own backyard, or save time by going with air-dried blanks. This latter option lets you complete the bowls in a day or two. See our Convenience-Plus Buying Guide for tools and accessories used, and for the 5×12"-diameter green or air-dried wood blanks for the large serving bowl, and the four 21/2×7"-diameter green or air-dried wood blanks for the smaller side bowls. We’ll begin turning the large serving bowl from green wood. If working with air-dried wood, you can skip the rough turning and storing steps (required when using green wood) and turn the blanks into finished bowls in the same day.
