Bloodwood Bowl

I got an urge to turn today, so on the way home from work I stopped and got a piece of Bloodwood. I've never used it before and wasn't sure how it was going to work. I like the look but I need to get a couple new turning tools to make the job a bit easier. This piece is 2 1/2 inches tall and 6 in. wide.

Cherry & Poplar box

This is a small Cherry and Poplar wood box I've had sitting around for about four months. I had the box portion done and finally got tired of it not being done. I took the afternoon yesterday and finished the lid and put a couple of coats of oil on it. I hope you all like it.

I'm thinking of making a new kitchen for our house, but I've never done anything that large. I'm going to do a bunch of research on it and see if it is really what I want to do.
I'm also wanting to build a bed for my wife and I. She wants a dark wood like walnut, or Mahogany. I'm not against that but I've kind of gotten to liking painted pieces these days. I was thinking of using Poplar and painting it black. Anyone have any thoughts?
