Bowl from marblewood. Difficult wood to work with! Very fragile and brittle, it broke and chipped frequently. An awful lot of work, beautiful result, but I won’t be buying any more marblewood :)

Very Nice bowl…I know what you mean about chipping..I really like using Marblewood…but I use it for things other than turning and have not had problems.
