The following project was made from Palo Verde that had laid in a wood pile for sometime. This was a bear to turn and was a real tool duller. Has can be seen from the pictures there were numerous cracks and consequently to keep it from blowing apart I left the walls fairly thick, just to the point that the outside cracks did not show on the interior. This bowl has great characteristics and nice wppd grain and color. The bowl finish was with triple EEE and Shelawax.

Beautiful turning, and the wood is spectacular.

FYI In the future cracks like those can be stabilized or even filled with “thick” super glue. Larger cracks can be filled with glue and then press in sawdust before it sets up (or other material if you want a contrast.
