Ogee Bowl made from beetle kill pine.
About 9-10” diameter and 2” high.
Umpteen zillion coats of spray lacquer.
Man this pine soaks up the finish!

Who knew beetle kill pine could look so good?

Is it turned or CNC cut?
Actually that doesn’t make a difference, it’s beautiful and shiny, and you are correct the wood is ”specktacular”.
