  1. Who would have thought! I was looking online for various trees native to Georgia and ran across Catalpa wod and as a turner was interested. I have one of the largest Catalpa trees I have ever seen on my property. I can't reach around it…not even close. Of course I will not cut it down, but occasionally a large limb will break off in a storm. Now I am looking forward to Mother Natures help!

  2. Very nice, Steve! It's interesting for me to see it without bark on. The grain in this wood is just beautiful. Great job!

  3. Hey Steve, found your channel while looking for reviews on the 1624. Awesome work and beautiful bowl! Thanks for posting it!

  4. looks great steve . learning experience huh? well i thin you did great but yeah had a lot of flex maybe it will stiffen out as it drys a little . if its somewhat green i bet it will warp a little to . should add character to the piece .

  5. Excellent! I want a bowl, please and I’ll pay top price for one plus I’ll sent you the money first if that helps. PLEASE! 😲

  6. Interesting outboard setup. Smart man you are. That grain is absolutely beautiful. What a special bowl that is.

  7. YAKMAN HERE !!

    ONCE AGAIN STEVE U JUST Amaze me !!
    GREAT JOB :-)) !!
    I WOULD THINK IF U PUT
    15 to 20 COATS ON IT .. IT WOULD BE GOOD TO GO !!
    KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK !!
    YAKMAN OUT !!

  8. If you're going to stain a project the highest grit of sandpaper you want to go with is 220, anything over that is just polishing the wood. After I apply polyurethane to a project I wet sand with 600 grit to smooth it out then hit it with a buffer. Love the grain pattern on the piece Steve, you do excellent work

  9. Amazing piece Steve, pearlescent indeed it's like it glows. keep thinking as of late you turn has the prettiest grains but this one is a topper for sure wow !

  10. Its a key bowl! Put it on a table near the front door and drop your keys in when you get home! Beautiful bowl Matthew. I just realized we might have the same compressor. Is it an Ingersoll Rand T-10?
