Default Still scrolling bowls

This is the latest effort
Poplar, western red cedar, big leaf maple (quilted and spalted), redwood, douglas fir, I think there's some pine in there as well.
Very handy hobby for cleaning out the "scrap bin"
Kids and friends seem to want one of these bowls of one design or another, so I keep trying to figure efficient ways to put them together.The staves on the upper part of this bowl are still the trickiest, but staves are getting easier with practice.

I don't have the final finish applied on this bowl, it has a couple of coats of Dalys Benite which is a deeply penetrating conditioner and hardener. I chose this because most of this surface is end grain softwood.

I still get a question or two about tools used. This is all scrolled and tablesawn and of course several different sanders. I do use a bandsaw to cut logs to size before final sizing on the table saw.
