Three years ago I received a lathe from my wife for a Christmas present. Yes, she is awesome! This is one of the bowls I made to give away the following year. It was turned out of dried poplar, and finished with bees wax and mineral oil.

very nice shape. I’ve been collecting poplar from pallets and was wondering how it turns? Any issues with dust, or end grain?

Thanks for the comments! I didn’t have much trouble with dust/end grain Scott, but then again my experience is narrow. One thing I have learned since doing this bowl, is that it is far more enjoyable to turn fresh, wet wood. The feeling of cool sap coming off while you turn is like no other.

Pretty! Had you turned it green it would probably be oval, both top and bottom, and would rock back and forth on its uneven foot!

In the first photo, it looks like the bowl is levitating. I had to study it for a few seconds to see what was going on. Nice bowl. I use that shape often
