Pic 4 is the original Jelutong (Dyera castulata) bowl that had nothing going for it. Pica 1,2,3, are after the piercing and carving. The piercing was done using a Dremel and various dentist drill bits I got from the local dentist. Although classed as a hardwoiod, Jetulong is soft like balsa and is easy to work, more suited for carving than turning.
Pic 5 and 6 is another bowl that had been sitting in storage for a year or so, carved three sets of Ivy on it and a dab of paint in the conversion.
