View Full Version : New bowl but what wood

1st Feb 2011, 11:28 PM
I finally had a morning to myself with no one around to interupt so decided after making a few pens recently I better get back to bowl making practice. I think it turned out ok after filling a million little holes and hitting it with EEE and ultrashine. The only problem was the blank was not marked and I cannot remember what wood it was that I was given, any ide? (I know it came from a supplier in Tassie).
