Simple Cedar Bowl

My cousin brought me over a load of cedar and when I asked him what he would like in return, he said "just a simple bowl". So, that's what he got. The grain was too nice to mess around with anyway. A little texturing on the rim. Finished with Tung Oil and Beall buffed. 12" dia. X 5" tall. Thanks for looking and all comments welcome, Don L.

      Don, This is one of my favorite of your pieces. The wood is beautiful, the shape of the bowl is great, and the carving enhancements are just right.
      Well done.

      Beautiful bowl, Don. The grain like a stone in a pool, and the black lines emphasizing the carved detail. You sure have a good eye for 'not doing too much.' Wonderful.

      That is a beautiful piece of wood. Is that the aromatic cedar as used in cedar chests? What's it like to turn?
