Eastern Red Cedar Bowl. I am taking a day off from work today to do some running around. Had a bit of time before I head out so I felt like turning a bowl. Eastern Red Cedar is vary aromatic and so I did not want to put any finish on it. So I sanded to 1200 and buffed the outside with a cotton wheel. I collected the shavings and put them inside. This will add a nice aroma in the house. It wont last too long but we will enjoy it for a bit of time. I may end up finishing with a wipe on poly in the future.

1200! That’s a lot of sanding. It look’s grate and the color is so nice.

-- I love my lathe. It’s old, not too pretty and I don’t really know how to use it… Love it!
