Looks like very pretty wood, and you finished it nicely. Personally I'm not a fan of that shape (I like my bowls to curve under rather than have "vertical sides") but I recognize the skill that went into it.

Which photo is a closer representation of the actual color of the wood? The two pix are so different it's hard to see they are the same bowl.

Thanks for the comments duncsuss. I'm still pretty new to turning so I haven't got too much under my belt just yet. This is my 2nd bowl.

I think the flash went off on the first pic, but not the second. I'd say the actual colors lie somewhere in the middle, but the bottom pic is probably a better representation. Here's the first pic with the flash off. When the light hits it from different directions it really changes the colors.

I love canarywood, especially the smell. Not bad for your second bowl, my second was about the same shape and size. But I'm with Dunc, try for a more sweeping curve on the outside (and inside for that matter). Check out Richard Raffans book " The art of turned bowls" ( or something like that) it will really help you to see shapes better.

It seems like everything is your favorite to turn, Mike :laughing:
