That’s a very interesting piece of wood, is all buckeye colored like that with the dark streaks? I really like the slight coves you turned into the bowl too, they give it an extra dimension in my mind.

Mike, I’m not sure if all of the buckeye has this or not. This is the first time i have used it and have only been turning on the lathe about 8 months. I got this wood from a tree that the power company had cut near the power line on our farm. It had been down for probably a year so not sure if that is part of the coloring or not either.

Good looking bowl! You got some interesting wood, like the cool shape and patterns on it. Great turning piece.

Have your say...
