    Little Bowl

    Here is a little Red Mallee Burl bowl I turned. It is 7" across one way 5 3/4" the other and 1 1/4" deep. Finished with Satin wipe on poly. Wasn't a big piece but wanted to try my hand at it since I had never turned it and always thought it was so beautiful. Now I may have to try another one. The wife jumped on this one so fast grabbing it out of my hand saying that one is mine. Oh well at least it will be displayed at our house.

    Real nice bowl, Bernie. How was the mallee burl to turn? The one piece I've done was about like turning granite. It cut beautifully, but it ate the edge off a gouge in a heartbeat.

    Thanks for the kind comments. Yep Vaughn it was hard. It did turn pretty well and I did have to sharpen the Thompson's once. Otherwise I am going to be finding some more for sure.
