Sassafras natural edge bowl. My first natural edge bowl. Turned with a paper joint. Sanded to 400 with a few coats of natural shellac. This was fun, and the only challenge was that it had started to rot, so the outer inch or so was real pithy. Wood started out as a piece of firewood in my pile. When I split it, it looked pretty inside, so I kept it. Interesting fact, the wood came from the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in NW Arkansas. It is wood that they cleared off the miles of trails on the grounds.
