This time I have borrowed from Asia on the form along with the opening or rim. 6x7", finished with *** and buffed on top of the spirals. The wood is Camphor Laurel much of it is heart timber from a large branch. The CL that grows in this region is highly figured and at time amazing chatoyance, although it is not a popular wood to turn.

Gorgeous wood and turning, as per usual for you Hughie, thanks for sharing. :thumbsup:

When you say not the most popular, I presume it does not turn easy. Any specific issues, like tearout, or is it just a dense wood and needs sharp tools?

Not popular as it considered a noxious weed here and so its often over looked. But other wise its a soft wood the turns and sands very well.
