Woodturning an Unnatural Edge Burl Bowl – Mallee and Resin Hybrid

Woodturning an Unnatural Edge Burl Bowl - Mallee and Resin Hybrid
In this video I create a hybrid blank from an Australian Brown Mallee Burl, polyurethane resin and then turn an enclosed bowl. I use a mixture of traditional and modern tools for my turning, using the new negative rake carbide tips from Easy Wood Tools for the finishing cuts on the resin to stop chipping out.
