    Eucalyptus

    This one comes from a piece of Eucalyptus from a friends house in the Blue Mountains near Sydney, very hard and dense with a fare bit of silica by the way it took the edge off my gouges. 9x5 oiled with BLO and buffed . Second image some detail on blending the spiral into the rim area

    Really nice looking bowls!!!
    I cannot imagine having the patience to do something like that...let alone the skill to do it.

    Enjoy,

    Very nice, Hughie! The spirals look so perfect they almost look fake. Beautifully done.

    Funny you should mention that Vaughn. I used to spend hours making sure each and every one was perfect only to suspected of using a CNC So now I leave a few imperfections to suggest it was not done on a CNC and it works.

    Beautiful bowl Neil. Once again, you've given me one of those "how'd he do that?" moments
