Some time ago I had to cut a heap of Poplar logs into 5/8” thick boards on the mill. Some of the boards were not up to scratch and I dumped them on the scrap pile. Months later, one board had not only bowed a lot but had also cupped dramatically. This piece of wood wanted to become “The fruit bowl”! It still required a lot of shaping and MANY hours of sanding and since it wasn’t exactly a pretty piece of wood, I stained it very dark. The base and pyramids were made from European Beech. Finish is Danish oil and wax. The piece measures 40” long x 9” high x 5.5” deep.
