    I have all the oak stump/oak pieces I could ever need. Some are as large as 30 inch in diameter. I been thinking about getting a small curved ax or using my die grinder and making some large bowls. They will be rough cut both inside and out. Something large enough to hold bread or fruit and definitely rustic.
    Does it matter which way the grain is flowing? I can cut the pieces anyway or any size I want.
    Just another project to get underway.
    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    I think what you need is called a "gutter axe".
