hi evereyone all is well love working the wood lathe. here are a couple of pieces i have done they came out very well i was very proud of my job. the steamed madrone burl is a outstanding wood type very stable and some great figure. you just never no how going to look untill i apply the minereal oil. i like mineral oil because it isnt toxic. all my pieces are usere frendly. sometimes i let wood dry slowly or stack tight this helps blue wood. blueing develps diffent colors along grain almost like camofloge. thes are some of my earlier works wen i was just learning lathe. i have good amount of cured dry madrone with minor moisture. large bowl about 12 by 3in thick smaller one about 5 in 3 in thick. i sold these pieces to a friends brother he fell in love and are his favorit out of his bowl colection. he has over one hundred from around the world i gave him a dinamite deal. i was proud and suprised to find out that they are his center pieces at his house hurray. wood turning is fun one day i will get my large 1950s lathe up and running so i could create larger pieces.
hope you like my work. and have fun woodworking fellow frends. i allways love to give advice and talk wood.
chow chow form oregon take care and enjoy life.
