3/4 done on this box elder burl bowl…turning out quite nice…the wood is real close to being punky so i coated it good with sanding sealer. Waiting for that to dry good so i can coat it again. In the meantime i’ve been wanting to make some curved toolrests so this is what i come up with today. They should work real good

Fabulous piece of wood, just have to love the colours.

Love the curved tool rest. Going to make one myself. Thanks for sharing.

I do like the tool rest and the end results!

Beautiful, the finished bowl looks like water splashing.
Tool rests are great too.
