The smell of this yellow cedar was intoxicating! I love working this burl wood.I left the bark attached and carved part of the rim into a scallop edge. The picture is showing sideways. Don’t know how to fix that.

I agree Joanne, Yellow Cedar Bird’s Eye Burl is one of the best smelling woods. Nice platter. I copy my pictures to the desk top and then add them to a posting.

It smells as good as it looks. An intoxicating bowl. Beautiful.

I spent a career building wooden boats in BC and am absolutely addicted to the aroma of Yellow Cedar. A few shavings in a bag even make a nice little sachet for your dresser.
Welcome to LJ. You do very nice work.
You can rotate your pics in your device and if you then edit (like a very small crop) them they will remain oriented correctly. Without the edit they will often revert to the original orientation.
Looking forward to more of your pieces.

I do love a great figured wood! Beautiful piece.

Any tips on sealing the bark to ensure it won’t crumble off over time?

Another beautiful piece, very organic, reminds me of a large oyster holding a precious pearl.
