The top rim is true wormy American Chestnut, from a very old log cabin that was torn down here in WV. It is getting so rare to find a good piece now that it is totally extinct. The 2nd ring down is Black Cherry and the third ring down is Wild Cherry. The bottom is Black Cherry. This bowl was done in exchange for some small pieces of cherry from and older gentleman in this area, a true master woodworker who is now too ill to be in the shop at all. He misses it so much. I made this for he and his wife and am also making him and his son a matched set of pens from the Chestnut.
