    Cedar Bowl

    This is the second bowl the lady wanted. She wanted a small change bowl for their walk-in closet. After seeing it she said it was so beautiful it was going on the dresser. Anyway it is 8 1/2" X 2 1/2". It is being finished with Antique oil.

    Bernie......Very nice. Was there anythng different you did when turning cedar? I have never used it before
    Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!

    The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.

    I agree! Aeromatic Cedar looks outstanding AND smells GREAT while you're working.

    Another GREAT bowl.

    That's really nice Bernie... makes me inspired to get some of the cedar (actually think it's juniper) that I have stacked out in my wood pile... it's from three trees that the power company cut on my property because they were leaning over the power lines that crosses behind the house.

    Do you have any trouble with the oils in the cedars affecting the finish? I did a couple of bowls last year or year before and the finish stayed sticky for a long long time... the wood was still green at the time... I think what I have now has been cut long enough to be relatively dry.

    Thanks again. Dom I don't turn cedar any different than any other wood. I treat it pretty much the same.

    Chuck I generally like to let cedar sit for some time before turning it. I try to get a bunch every so often so I have it around all the time. This particular tree was cut into bowl blanks about 3 yrs ago. It actually was stacked and sat in my storage shed. I pulled a few pieces out and let them sit in the shop for a week before turning. It was pretty dry and when I went out this morning the AO is dry and ready for the second coat.

    Bernie sharp looking bowl. When ever i turn cedar it really messes with my sinuses, i don't turn it much. Do like the looks a bunch though.

    Another nice bowl Bernie. Do you think the purple color will stay or is it normal for it to fade out?
