Well done John. This will definitely be a DT3. I like your choice of Clapham’s, and as mnguy will mention in comment #8 . . . “it smells great :) ”
Should get many years of service out of this one.

Hats off for finding a piece of that cedar. It’s beautiful. That’s a big boy too, hope it didn’t give you many problems while turning.

Wonderful job with a fantastic piece of wood. And great choice of finish – I love Clapham’s Salad Bowl Finish – it gives such a nice soft sheen and brings out the natural color. And it smells great :)

Thanks guys, mother nature gets the credit! I took my time deciding what finish to use, and am glad I chose the salad bowl finish. The only tricky part of the bowl was the patch shown in the 1st and 4th pictures. It was softer than the rest, would have been easy to get the wall thinner there. I really liked the grain in this part.
