This is the other half of the log that also produced this bowl. This one is a little smaller in diameter, only 10” but just about the same height, 4”. Pics were taken quickly because I was running late to a house warming party, and I needed to get pics taken fast. It now sits atop a counter in a friends newly built home and they want some more pieces too! Comments/critiques please!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments!

Roper, I learned to use good ventilation the hard way with spalted wood the first time…very nasty sinus infection. I know others have had much worse happen to them now too. I’m always careful about it.
