Debbie's Gum Burr Bowl

This was another piece for a work colleague, with Debbie asking for a nicely figured bowl for her Father's birthday. I made two pieces - this one was the smaller of the two - about 7 inches long (the bowl is about 4inches diametre), and the one Deb chose.
It's made from a nice piece of Australian Grey Gum Burr - a deeper red colour than some of the other Gum Burrs that I have used - and it turned really nicely. As always with these pieces, sanding down to 1500 grit really brings out the figuring...
