The first picture shows the gnarly turmoil of the tree and the others show the turmoil within the grain. This particular piece of wood is what turners dream of. It is sanded to about 1000, oiled with Mahoneys Utility Finish (heated walnut oil) and then buffed and polished using the PSI buffing system. I used the Wood-N-Things goblet buffing system for the inside of the small bowl/dish. Dish measures 5" accross, 2 3/8" high, 2" deep inside. This is the same tree as the one I used for the other posted nautral edged bowl. Comments and questions welcomed.
