    Cedar Bowl

    Here is a cedar bowl I did. It had been in log form for about 2 yrs and was cut up last week. This was a big cedar at 15 1/2" across. It is 9 1/2" X 3". It is finished with antique oil.

    I love the looks of cedar just don't like turning it. I have a bunch of it here at the shop,but it'll most likely sit there for a long time. What you did with this just is fantastac.

    That is a nice looking piece of wood.... I have 3 trees stacked in my wood pile that have been down about 2 - maybe 3 years... need to try to get some it ready to turn.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
