Latest Effort..

From an offcut of a chunk of Cedar of Lebanon. Not very easy to turn and very difficult to polish; this one again is a BOGOF bowl for my bro's better half:

Same stuff Andy, leaves a loverly pong in the 'shop. I bought a load of CofL for drawer bases for the chest of drawers and this was a chunk that was left over, so I thought I'd give it a quick spin and see if anything came of it - Rob

Very nice, turning that requires very sharp tools to get a good finish.
Regards,

My tool kit is almost complete, only a few more to get.

This was sanded with a Flexipad sander on the outside and a Kirjes pneumatic sanding attachment on the inside, starting at 60g and finishing at 320g; the tear out on the inside near that huge knot didn't really stand a chance - Rob
