I was purchasing some myrtle wood from a guy and he cut into one log and what did he find in the middle?
Take a look… It looked like it was a bowl from the 1930s.

I wonder if thats what caused the burl. It might be called a ‘burl bowl’ or a ‘bowling burl’. LOL

Greg,

What’s amazing is that he didn’t saw into the bowl . . . or are you pulling my leg? ;-)

You should take that bowl to the antiques roadshow. I’ll bet there is a mildly interesting history behind it.
