Palm root bowl

      Palm "wood" is a difficult material to work with, consisting of sponge and wire. I used most of a two-oz. bottle of thin ca glue to hold the roots together and harden the rest of the surface. I also spent a band saw blade cutting through the roots. The final shaping was done with 36-grit paper by necessity, then sanded through the grit sequence to 600. A thin piece of persimmon (a remnant of the glue block) was left on the foot. All comments welcome.

      Excellent use of the material. So unusual, I'd call it a keeper

      The amount of work put in really speaks well. Interesting and unique. Thanks for sharing.

      David, I think this piece looks terrific! As long as the end product looks like this then sandpaper is great. Nice job.

      Extremely well done. Palm seems to be more of a grass than wood, and for turning, close to celery. Wow!

      Glad you went through the trouble of making this piece. Such unusual wood and a real pleasure to look at.
