    Curly Red Eucalyptus Bowl

    Here's the last of tonight's lathe photo session. Another red eucalyptus bowl I finished up recently, but it has more curl than most of the other wood I've gotten from the fallen branch I salvaged a while back. It's about 3 1/4" by 6 3/4", finished in my usual wipe-on poly and buffed. There's some included bark, but the curl is what stands out IMHO:

    I managed to keep the foot smaller on this one, and stayed away from my usual inward-turning rim:

    And one more shot to show off the curl some more:

    I just may have to heed Tod's advice about driving a few timber nails into the base of the tree this branch fell off of. I'd sure like to salvage more of it.

    As always, comments and critiques are welcome...

    Got to be one of the best ones yet Vaughn!

    Very nice!

    BTW, did you know that if you run a garden hose off your muffler from your chainsaw into a 5 gallon bucket of water, it is almost silent when running..............

    ..........or so I've been told

    Great job!

    You keep posting your eucalyptus projects and I'll be forced into finding a chunk around here. I really like the grain and coloring.
