Rough turning a Jumbo Yarn Bowls produce a massive quantities wood shavings. As a result reclaiming and recommitting the wood, has become a very large part of Bob’s natural work process.
Every time a Jumbo bowl is designed and rough turned, it produces a 30 gallon (plus) yard bag packed full of beautiful wood shavings. Storing and transferring dozens of bags to the landfill on a weekly basis seemed wasteful, and our community gardens had their fill. When Bob found out his boxing Trainer/Master Gardening buddy; Luis Camacho needed an endless supply of mulch for his large tropical gardens at home, the problem was solved. The best thing is that Bob’s commitment to turning the shavings back to the earth isn’t only the green way; but a way for him to stay healthy as well. As long as he’s turning, Bob has to continue his rigorous boxing sessions twice a week so Luis can recycle them back to mother nature. Heck of a good thing.
