Redwood bowl

This one gave me problems! It came off the chuck three times blowing out the chuck recess twice. I didn't dry it properly apparently because during sanding I saw a few cracks. I didn't quit though.
Here it is.

Way to keep after it Slick. When using a chuck recess, you have to be careful on how big a cut you take. Better to take lighter cuts and not put too much stress on the recess. Glad to see you were able to save it.

I had a similar problem today. I am a fan of the recessed chuck however with redwood, I always seem to blow out the recess. I think it's because redwood is actually so soft. Not sure though. I too was able to save mine, definatly makes you feel better when you can. :) looks good!

I love the shape of this bowl. It's simple and elegant. Looks great.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Looks Great!

I didn't know turning a soft wood could turn out so beautiful! I thought turning was pretty much a hardwood game. Obviously not! Doesn't look like that 46-460 tool rest was so bad that it held you back. That bowl is gorgeous in my humble opinion.

Bloodwood

Sorry guys, I just realized that this is incorrectly labeled.
It is a bloodwood bowl.

Thank you all for the kind words.
