Another beautiful turning Joe. Not familiar with Seal a Cell, is it a shellac based product?

Hey DocK, Seal-A-Cell is an oil based clear stain by General Finishes. I have been pleased with how it really makes the grain opo and come alive.

Beautiful work, on a beautiful bowl. I’ve never heard of tigre caspi, its coloring and grain pattern is great. Is this a turners wood that is available mostly in blanks? Have you seen it in lumber?

Again, this is a very nice piece!

Wow, I always thought it would be neat to turn a bowl out of juniper, it has small pockets of rot and I bet the natural “holes” would be wonderful
