natural rim cedar vessel

my wife showed me a picture of something similar so I figured I could turn one. I am not trained to use a lathe but I do enjoy turning. This was the most difficult thing I have tried , half the time my tool was just hanging in midair the other half it was throwing chunks the size of golf balls at me. I do haft to say once it was roughed in it was a joy to turn.

-- look up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, no it's a big hunk of the bowl I was turning.

That is a very beautiful hunk of wood. Nice job and stay safe when working with stuff like that.

My wife says I need a suit of armor when I turn, and some times I think she just might have some thing thereā€¦. Lol :)
