Bowl of bloodwood. The block of wood was a Christmas present from a friend. It was very hard to turn. I had several catches that caused big chunks to go flying. It’s definitely a wood you must pay attention to. Because of the pieces I kept losing, the design changed a few times…but the finished wood is stunning.

Very nice. When the gouges start to lift off chunks, I reach for the scrapers.

Aaron, that is one good looking bowl – nice job. I’m still working up the courage to turn my first bowl – one of these days :-)

Very nice. I love turning bloodwood for plates. RussellAP is right. Use scrapers. And go lightly. It sure turns EVERYTHING in the shop red! And I do love the chatoyancy of finished bloodwood in the right light.
