    Wood identification please

    hi. I've had the below pieces for a few years, and I labeled them black redwood. Can't find much on the web to compare with. And what I can find indicates that black redwood is uncommon. Any suggestions or idea what those could be? Wood is very soft and has no distinctive smell.. thank you

    More Cherry Burl

    Nice. I have used OB shine juice or bees was mixed with mineral oil on burls. I usually try to stabilize the blank prior to turning then use sanding sealer before the wax coat. Btw. Do you have any cut offs from the burl ?

    Sound system..?

    I use aftershokz headset (also use them for running). They sit on the outside of your ears and deliver the sound through your cheekbones, so you can always hear outside noises and put ear protection if needed. They are blue tooth connected. If not, I just have my phone going.

    Captive ring tip

    Good morning. Looking for captive ring tips. It seems that I always end up with a "lip" on the inside of the ring, and I spend a considerable amount of time sanding the ring with long strips of sandpaper.

    Wow. What do you mean by "Soft Maple, with Maple ply MDF core"?. The way I imagine floating shelves is a frame, with mdf covering or plywood. Thanks

    Another spalted bowl

    I think this was oak that I spalted at the same time as my last bowl. Not as much figure but there was a void (damage to the three) that came out very nice. Took about 6 hrs to turn as I was taking very shallow cuts, afraid to snag that edge/ void. Finish is shellac.
