Spectacular. I’ve never heard of this type of wood, but the bowl you’ve made from it is beautiful.

It’s incredible how you managed to keep it in one piece when turning. Otherwise this live edge looks fantastic, colour too.

Stunning color and shape. Better find that firewood vendor and shake him down for more of that.

Wow, gorgeous! Does working with it live up to the ominous name or is it fairly easy to turn?

Yes, smitdog it lived up to its name. I spent a lot of time sharpening. However, I would be happy to do it all over again in as much it is such an interesting and beautiful wood.
