Lignum Vitae bowl

8” diameter bowl turned from Lignum Vitae. This stuff is gruesome to sand, the paper loads up instantly. I think I burned through about $10 worth of sanding discs for my drill on this.

“I think I burned through about $10 worth of sanding discs for my drill on this.”

Try the 3-M pads for sanding, you can start with brown and work your way to white. Then, if necessary, use sanding paper. I find it outlasts sandpaper by a wide enough margin to cover its cost.

Great looking bowl.

a great loking bowl. The wood looks fantastic. I’ve got a small piece of that wood and I’ve used it for blocks on the bandsaw.

Many years ago I cut a bunch of Lignum Vitae for a company that used it for brake shoes on mine cars. Have you noticed the natural wax that builds up on the surface after it is cut? Beautiful bowl!
