This is a Coyotewood saucer that started out as a 11in bowl. Then I had a catch and it was a 10” plate. Oh, hell another catch now it’s a saucer. Thats what I get for trying to get the edge to thin. But if you don’t try you will never learn. You can’t be scared of it. If you mess up you try again. It’s kinda good this way I learned alot about plates. Doing bowls is one thing and plates another. I’ll try any thing I want to be able to do it all. So I’ll keep on trying and learning.

I hate to see the wood disappear from a bowl, but you’re right. It’s the only way to learn. Been there, done that. Coyotewood?? Very pretty wood. Nice saucer too.

The result is a nice saucer anyway. Does it have a finish on it? It kind of looks mahoganyish. I have never heard of Coyote wood. I guess I know now it is tricky to turn…

coyotewood is also called Coyote, Granadillo, Guayacan trebol, Jacaranda do brejo, Koenatepi, Macacauba, Macawood, Trebol
cuts easy nice curls polishes nice this has just oil speed polished on the lathe. Only thing I found wrong was cracks easy.
