This is a 14 inch natural edge pine bowl. I am posting this sence I have recieved a few Emails asking if pine was a good wood to turn sence alot of us have acess to it. This is ponderosa pine killed by the pine beetle. The blue stain comes from the fungas that is carried on the beetle as is bores. The wall is 1/4 inch even all the way through the foot. So yes I turn pine and I think it is a nice wood to turn and its free or real cheap.

Good job with the bowl. I was never any good at getting a consistent thickness. Did the branch growing out the side give you any chatter?

Very nice turning. It doesn’t look like pine.

No cross grain tear cutting over the knots if the tool is sharp and the angle correct.
