This lumber was milled by Mr. Charles Chavez Jr. Of Tool, AZ. a member of Lumberjocks. It is an unknown species of aromatic sappy conifer and eucalyptus as a trim ring. The Bowl is 15” dia. and 7” high with 4 small serving bowls about 6” x 4”. Mr Chavez commissioned me to design and produce this project when I visited his mill in search of lumber for other projects. In order to harden the sap, I placed the lumber in a 200 degree kiln for about an hour. It could have used much more. He has several species of milled hardwoods which made my trip from Fort Mohave AZ very worth while. Off hand, I remember mesquite and several others besides the aforementioned species. Except for the extensive logging of sandpaper, the wood turned beautifully. It is riddled with red brown tight hard knots the really sparkle against the creamy color of the wood
