I really like that, and couldn't be more aptly named. Looks alive. I think you are getting better, this one has a lot more appearance of motion, which isn't easy with wood. I think it's the undulation.

Nice work. I don't remember anyone asking what tools are you using? I've never done anything except cut plywood, and there is always a friable edge, unless you do something to prevent it. With that much entry into it, I would expect a lot more tear out.

Thanks for posting.

TherealSteveN, thanks for the positive feed back,
I have a couple of tools from Arbortec, that I love and they are great for getting the shaping done and lots of sanding. Being a newbie to woodworking, not 100% sure what you mean by 'friable edge' I,m going to take a guess at the raw edges, please correct me if I'm wrong, but have found that it all smooths out really well.

actually - the eye of the artist
things like this just don't happen, it takes an artist to "SEE" the end result way before it happens
and I love the plywood base, nice touch

Mark, so far I've used a tinted polyurethane to give a little color, I stained the underside of a bowl I made, partly to cover up the filler I had to use to cover up up the bad cut job I did

not 100% sure what you mean by 'friable edge'

- Diane Mc
Anything that can be easily crumbled, crushed, broken, sheared off could be considered friable, and plywood because of it's multiple thin ply's fits that bill. Baltic Birch a little less so because so much care is made to fill voids with the donuts/footballs they use, but along an edge it can crack away from it's neighboring layer leaving large unsightly gashes. Even cutting it on a table saw is sometimes a chore to keep the edges clean. One of the main reasons track saws with their rubber edge lines are so popular. Going at it with a cutter head I would think it would make it more so.

From the looks of it, either that Arbortech head is great, or you have a gentle touch.
