This bowl was turned from camphor laurel and has a rosewood plug in it.
I love the way camphor raidiates and sort of “glows”.

This bowl is about 190mm wide and 40mm deep (about 7 1/2 inches by 1 1/2)
finished with EEE Ultra Shine and Shellawax

thanks for looking
comments and critiques welcome

Master Broda. Very well done.. you will be a force to be reckoned with..
The shimmer or glow is the “chatoyance” a sort of 3D look

One more beautiful bowl. The rosewood plug adds to its look.

Very nice bowl. The Camphor really shows off well in your work.
