This cherry was incredibly hard. I struggled with stalling the lathe a few times during the turning, but overall it turned out really good. It doesn’t show up very well in the photos, but the chatoyance is amazing with this piece.

A very elegant bowl.

Nice job letting the wood figure “speak” for itself.

Very nice bowl, that Cherry is speaking to me. If that is a crotch cut, and I think it is, it would be arguable to work it, but once you arrive, lookit what you have there, absolute beauty.

Thanks for posting.

Nice work, Phil. I like the grain there.
