This is a Cherry bowl with a lid that was turned from “green” wood so it moved a bit after it dried. It had a branch growing through the piece I chose for the lid and it gives it a little wood “character”. This was bowl #6 for me.I turned the lid a few days after the bowl which warped out of round so I fitted the lid to the smallest diameter. Then the bowl moved again and the lid was loose. That’s life with a living product!
It is 9 1/4” diameter and 5 1/2” high.
It was turned in 2007 so it is a bit darker now.
I sanded it to 400 grit, then used EEE polish and finished with Shellawax.
