Brought home some pine logs and branches a while ago from a wooded area next to my workplace. I decided to try out some end grain bowls.

This pine was VERY dense and dry. The branch I started with had many bug holes and some bad checking, but I got lucky and was able to get 2 small little bowls out of this branch.

This is the first. I sanded on the lathe to 320 or 400, then resanded by hand from 100 up to 2000 (because I didnt sand properly in the first place, shouldve just done it by hand from the get go).

Finished this one with Mineral Oil only, so I can use it in the kitchen.

The branch was so dense that the pith is solid and aside from the little crack at the top edge (it was in there before turning i believe), it came out great.

Not too often do we see pine in a turning. Looks great, turned out nice.
