This is a bowl from red mallee burl that I made for my mother for Mother’s Day. Picked up the burl from ebay. Sanded to 600 grit, finish is wipe on poly. Soon you’ll be seeing some pistol grips from some material I cut off the bottom of the blank.

This is some great wood. I’ve seen these on e-bay. Nice work on the bowl.

What a beautiful bowl. I just started learning to turn and at this point I’m not sure I’d want to attempt turning a piece of wood that nice, as I might screw it up. You turned it into a masterpiece. Well done!

It’s absolutely stunning! Beautiful burl. I hope someday to make one as nice.
