Small rice bowl with decorative bead turned from Tamboti, or African Sandlewood. It is finished with blonde shellac and a thin wax coating. The curve is nearly perfect, though not…the story of my turning it seems. I am a furniture maker by education but only “turn at” wood I fear.

-- Cheers!

I thought it was Walnut at first…Beautiful either way and I can’t see any flaws in your turning from here : )

If there is a term “pretty perfect”, it is that! Most wood workers are their own worst critic and you’re one too, I guess. It is a beautiful bowl, better than I cold have done. So quit beating yourself up over it, Scott. You did good! Bravo! La tamboti e finita!

Agree with the lads above . If you look hard enough you will probably find flaws in most things.
You did a great job on the bowl. You can be proud of it.

Beautiful wood and bowl. Warning! Do not use it for food because the wood contain poison and toxin that can be quite dangerous!
