    QMJ Eucaluptus bowl update, well the first bowl is turned, it is a very hard wood, not quite seasoned and contains quite a few splits, I will eventually fill these and see how they go.
    Not quite got the hang of polishing the end grain yet still experimenting.

    the end result is functional though and around 9" in Dia.
    Apples and plums brought back from France so a truly international dish:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    My father was keen on woods and when it came to Eucalyptus or Spotted Gum,yo give it its other name,he sometimes could only work it with an adze! You've done well to achieve those results!

    A bowl of great beauty and class.

    I understand you are only asking £1500 each.

    What a bargain...

    JJ :Cool:

    PS. Eucalyptus wood for sale. Reasonable prices.
