Before and after, cedar

I have done several cedar bowls in the past and enjoyed them. Whenever I run across some chucks of cedar I throw it in my trunk and take it home. Here is another example of a before and after.

It is a soft wood and required a lot of sanding to get rid of the torn wood fibers. The wood was also a little bit wet so it didn’t sand all that well. These two bowl will be given as gifts for two collage friends that are visiting for the weekend!
