This bowl came from the second half of the piece of wood I made the maple pot from. It was extremely unstable so I had it sitting around for a couple months adding CA glue as needed to keep it from coming apart. Seemed like every few days the wood would move again and I would have to change the shape. Finally after it was dry enough I was able to finish it. I took a lot of close up pictures so you could see the marble like grain in it. It turned out to be one of my coolest bowls I ever made.
I so much wanted to keep the last one but it was donated as a xmas gift to a good friend of my wife. This one will become part of our home. 6’’ in dia. x 4’’ high. Finished with lacquer and buffed to a shine.
Thanks for looking.
