I started this project shortly after getting my worksharp 3000, and it served as a test/training for me on how to use it.
With a soft wood like this cedar sharp tools are essential, so I quickly learned to use the worksharp which made all the difference, especially with all the knots in this piece. I finished with Howards butcher block conditioner after sanding to 600 and burnishing with shavings.

Here's a video of my process

Looking good, sir! I like the blend of heart and sap wood. The knots really pop, too!

I love my Worksharp 3000 but I don’t use it for turning tools except for the back of my beading tool, love the color of the bowl

Nice bowl. I have quite a few bigger chunks of cedar off a big tree from a couple of years ago. Might have to try a bowl like yours. Thanks
