  1. I always love it when you work with Yew, it’s such a pretty wood. This was definitely worth the wobble! Well done. . .

  2. Ah perfect timing. These videos always help me relax before I sleep. Thanks for making them πŸ™‚

  3. I couldn’t wait to see what that end grain was going to look like and when you were done it came very beautiful Andy.

  4. Just amazing Andy, this why I love woodturing. Keep the dream alive. πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†.Ernie smith from brisbane Australia

  5. I was astonished at the shape of the edge when you stopped the lathe to turn the piece. On the screen the shape of the piece of wood was not obvious. I admire your ability to spot the potential lurking in the most unpromising (to me) materials. Your natural edge forms are my favourites, and this undulant edge with the striking pale layer under the bark is outstanding.

  6. that was almost half a tree at the start! turned out amazing as usual thanks for making these videos ❀️🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

  7. Brilliant as always, but can’t lie: I was a little sad when you took that ‘ring’ off of the middle. Would have made this an even more unique and interesting piece. Maybe something to play with in the future?

  8. I hope you got the entire tree to turn at a later time!! That is a great piece! Love the English Yew, fantastic colors and grain.

  9. Magnificent yew! The entire vessel is stunning, and the way the sapwood’s vividly contrasting color enhances the natural edge is spectacular! You’ve done it again, Andy!

  10. Simply gorgeous! I love projects like this where you don’t need stain or color, you just provide oil and let the wood speak for itself.

    I always find myself wondering about the output from the lathe. For some of these projects with such unique color and grain, I’d be fascinated to see you take the larger wood-curls and peelings, combine and compress the heck out of them, and then resin and grind it into something unique. Dunno if that would work well or not, but might be fun to try!

  11. Yew is so much fun. Love the undulations of the rim. And that you kept the bark on. Well done.

  12. YEW made another great choice with this bowl! i could tell from the start this would be a great live edge piece and that’s exactly what yew had in mind as well. what a beauty

  13. I love the dimensions: how you kept it rather firm. It underlines the rough edge. The simple form adds to the bold and sturdy character of the wood. Nice!

  14. I really love this piece of yew wood the colours and grain are awesome. I love how you turn a piece of wood into an magnificent item and the fact you did put any form of stain on it just used the oil so the wood keeper its natural colours and the natural Edge is great thanks for a fantastic masterpiece and video.
