I’m not sure what you call this. Bowl, vessel, hollow turning?

Made from a Yellow Cedar Burl. 4.5”D x 2.75”H. The opening is 2.5”. Salad Bowl Finish.

I couldn’t finish the bottom the way I normally do. I was afraid it would split, there is a pretty good crack which I filled with super glue.

Nice, you are a collector of rare burls, I just found a hemlock one in my collection about 18 inches or more across. I did a yellow cedar hollow turning today and got a number of cracks. all end grain and a small opening and green, can be expected though.

I can see parts of a rainbow in the grain. Beautiful job.

Sure is purity! Cracks do happen so I have found and guess what happens when you get a catch when trying to get it just a little thinner:)

I think it came out very nice as well including the lip.
