I found myself with not a lot to do today except for applying a coat of danish oil on to a hall table I have been working on. So to fill in the rest of the day I grabbed a pretty awful bowl blank I had glued up using River Redgum, Myrtle and Blackwood and turned what I could. It is only small @ 115mm diameter x 95mm high. It was quite a challenge for me to turn with the limited skill set that I have. I much prefer a bigger diameter or shallower bowl. This was too narrow and too deep for my liking, but the scraps I used to glue up this blank were this size so it is what it is :D

lemme know what you think. You can view the turning of this bowl on my YouTube channel @

Thanks guys. I got really lucky with the Redgum. I scored a few lengths of it at a decent price, all beautifully figured.
