I recently had the joy of finishing this natural edge Milo (pronounced me-low) bowl (or is it a vessel?). This is the first crotch piece of Milo I've turned, and boy did it turn nicely. If you ever have a chance to attain this wood do so, you won't regret it. Although I haven't turned a vast variety of woods, Milo is my favorite thus far. It's beautiful, stabile, cuts wonderfully, and finished well. I hope you enjoy. Please feel free to give me some pointers if you see somewhere I can improve.

The dimensions are approximately: 5"h x 5"w x 1/8t

Nice pot , beautiful wood :thumbsup: Where does Milo originate from ?
It's considered a native Hawaiian tree, although it inhabits in various other places in the Pacific Ocean.

Beautiful wood, beautifully turned. I'd hate to give you pointers never having turned milo before so I'll comment after you send me a chunk:).
Seriously, very pretty piece.

Unfortunately Milo is also quite rare, otherwise I'd be happy to share with the group.
