    Emu Apple

    This particular wood I doubt if its made its way to the USA, another desert timber from the central highlands of Queensland. Turns very well and polishs up with a little buffing to a high degree of finish.

    6" high 5" dia with 1.5" opening, no finish just buffed, will wax it and buff it later, thought I would show its raw state to give some idea of how good this wood is.


    for further info on this tree. http://www.ttit.id.au/ The sites owner is a friend of mine who has catalogued a huge number of trees from a turners perspective.

    Pretty wood, pretty bowl. The swirls really work well with the fairly even textured wood.

    It would be fun to try.

    Enjoy,

    Your spiral pieces blow my mind, Neil. This one is no exception. Another superb piece.
