The difference between art and utility is often just marketing, the danger of this piece is that your wife may want a dozen before Christmas. I may also need to plagiarise this fun design  ;)

Cedar is quite lovely, not the easiest to get a high polish on but almost always beautiful, Looks to me like you have a few bowls to make George  ;D

I probably have at least 5 or 6 hundred roughed out at any one time.It used to be more but I am trying to cut back LOL

Regards George

14 " Cedar of Lebanon beautiful figuring.
This came from a Private Estate in Devon it was cut down about a year ago and roughed out soon after .
The second pic is the wood roughed out
Myself and three mates were given the opportunity to help ourselves to wood that had been cut down.
There was Yew,Turkey Oak Holm Oak and Cedar of Lebanon.

General Discussion / Re: Walnut Oil
« Last post by icewoodturning on Today at 02:02:25 PM »
Mahoney's oil is heat treated to remove allergens so ok for those with allergies. I was looking for a UK source.

"My walnut oil is 100% high linoleic acid walnut oil developed for woodworkers who want a non-toxic alternative to petroleum based polymerizing oils. What makes the oil unique is its ability to dry. I source my oil from trees in Northern California which are naturally high in two key fatty acids that help the oil polymerize. This is absent in culinary walnut oils. I also heat-treat the oil to remove the proteins that may cause allergic reactions to those predisposed to them."

Great to hear that I am sure it will be a talking point. Good to have something like this on display rather than hidden in a box.
