My barber came to the house last week with a large goncalco bowl blank.
Knowing I do a bit of turning, ( barbers know more about you than your local
barman) he asked me to make him a bowl.
I had never turned this wood before so I made sure my tools were sharp and
got on with it. What a superb finish. Was I just lucky or does this
wood always give such a good finish? Anyway barber liked it so I guess I
might even get a free haircut out of next time I go.
