That bowl is beautiful and so is the wood. Nicely done.

How cool is this bowl? I love that NIP. How is the endgrain oriented on this piece?

Sorry about the sideways pics. I’m better on the lathe than the computer! Palaswood, the end grain is at the top and bottom of the bowl. Seems like the NIP standard. The end grain did turn easy.

Great job, great wood and excellent finish.
Ain’t nuthin like NIP.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I have heard of this place called Norfork Island its where the trees grow sideways !!

Seriously now, you are lucky to get such a nice piece and to be able to work it to that extent the enjoy such a brilliant finish.

No apology needed it still looks great

Is the wood spalted, or is it naturally in that range of colors? I am not familiar with Palaswood.
