This bowl is camphor turned sidegrain w/natural edge. If you have not yet turned camphor wood it smells great when you put the gouge to it.

1. turned green down to 3/4” thick
2. ca glued the bark rim
3. let dry in paper bag
4. re-turned to 5/8” thick
5. sanded and applied semi gloss lacquer

I like the natural edge and the lip effect on the top. Good job.

Interesting piece. I had never heard of this tree until I just looked it up. I like woods that have a nice smell to them.
