Have’t worked with any sweet gum yet. How was the wood to work with. I have access to plenty of sweet gum and been thinking about what kind of things you could make with it. I am going to assume its a soft wood.
Appreciate any comments about the wood and keep up the good work on the bowl turning.

This is the first time I have worked with sweetgum, it was soft and easy to turn. The bottom of the bowl has some cool markings but I wanted to try a natural edge bowl – so it was the markings or the edge. I am going to try to find some more to work with. I would think it would make great candle holders… all I used was for finishing was a natural oil and then sealed it. Best of luck working with it and thanks for the nice words, I enjoyed turning the bowl and can’t wait to try another….
