Here is a Buckeye Burl bowl that I turned a few months back. When I got the Burl cap, I saw that the wood was almost all blue. I knew I wanted to try my hardest to save as much wood as possible, so I made it winged. I love Winged Burl bowls because they are all never the same. Nature decides the shape while I help bring it out.
I wet sanded it up to 600 grit using Howard's feed N wax. I use it as that is relatively cheap and I can purchase it locally.
