    Bowdark Bowl

    Wood was very dry and hard as a rock!!!

    Finished with General Finishes Outdoor Oil and Beall Buff all 3 wheels.
    It's almost 6" wide and a little over 3" deep.

    Ooh, that's a nice one, Shane.

    Seems like a lot of the nice wood species are hard as a rock when dry. I've been working on a dry carob bowl that I thought was gonna beat me to death.

    That's a sweet piece of Osage - and that is a dandy bowl, too...

    I very much like this one, nice shape and the wood is super

    If it was 12" wide, I'd say it looks like a bowl my mom used to have to make cookies in.

    LOL. Yes, very hard. But, personally, I class turning woods two ways: hard but enjoyable to turn and hard but difficult to turn. I enjoy turning seasoned OO. BTW, I must use a mask when cutting OO on the bandsaw as the dust irritates me. Shavings from the lathe don't seem to be troublesome. And, I wear old clothes or a smock when turning.

    Great looking bowl Shane. I have a few yellow stained t-shirts too, and quite a few black stained ones from oak and walnut too...
