Nut Bowl from Huon Pine, which only grows in southern and western Tasmanian rainforests. The wood has a rich golden texture, and an exquisite smell and touch. It is also one of the finest boat-building timbers known to man thanks to its durability and its strong oil, which makes it resistant to water penetration.
This was the first bowl I turned. The ‘legs’ were created by cutting out some of the rim on my bandsaw. The shavings in the bowl continue to send a heavenly fragrance throughout the room even two years after turning this bowl.
