This is my 3rd turned project which is made out of Cocobolo and finished with a coat of wax, Im really enjoying the turning process I have alot to learn but I just bought a couple of bowl gouges and this weekend Im going to order some scrapers so with the original set I got from Harbor Frieght and the tools that I will be adding I should have a good start to continue my new addiction.

Once again Thank you for looking

all comments are welcomed, its part of the learning

Love the looks of your Cocobolo Box, the color is excellent, I think that the final is just a bit too tall, hold your thumb over the top half and look at the picture you will see what I mean.

This looks gorgeous, the shape of the bottom of that bowl really shows off the grain. This is really an excellent piece. I think the top is a little too pointy for the bowls round belly however.
