Default A Few Cedar Bowls/Platters

I have been busy turning more cedar. Here are a few natural and square edge bowls or platters if you will that have come off the lathe of late. I love this stuff, the colorings and grain variations continue to simply amaze me.

First up one I thought I ruined. When I parted it off I discovered I had gone too deep and had a perfect hole in the bottom. Adding some walnut and aspen to the bottom fixed it up nicely.

This one yet to be finished:

Lots of natural edge on this one:

This one is quite large and the color is spectacular:

A little more variation and yet to be finished:

Really nice bunch of turnings Mark. I have made a few of those bowls also that I had to add a bottom. Funny thing was they sold faster than the other bowls. I do like turning cedar.
