Yellowheart, or Pau Amarello, is a hardwood from Brazil. It’s yellow color is fairly bright though I expect it to darken somewhat over time.
When turning yellowheart it creates a fine yellow dust which can cause skin rash and I doubt is good for your lungs so care must be taken.
The scrapers worked out well, allowing me to smooth out the inside of the bowl quite easily.
It was a great way to spend an afternoon.
