Beautiful. Never thought cedar would have a grain looking like that. Now, pyrogrophy is new to me. Is that burning..?

Welcome! Great looking bowl. I've never seen pyro done exactly like that. It reminds me of the look you get by torching the whole surface but yours is so much more refined. That took some time! We'd love to hear about your process if you don't mind sharing.

The bowl is 6 in wide and about 5 in tall. I burned the outline of the grain with a Razortip skew pen and burnished between the grain with the small ballpoint tip. The whole process took me 2 days. Finally I put a few coats of wipe-on poly.

I love it.

How was the cedar to turn? Cedar is cheap around here and I love the smell, but I thought it might be too splintery to turn well.

I hate signatures.

I love working with cedar! Just have to make sure the tools are Sharp! I find it to be a great wood for texturing, carving and sands easy. And it smells soooo good!
