This is a Manzanita Burl bowl I just finished. I have had it sitting around for a while now. Partly because it needed to dry out more and partly because I was a little scared of it,haha. This thing is full of bark inclusions and has some pretty serious checking.(Couldn’t see all that in the pic when I bought it). It ended up turning pretty nicely, i.e. it didn’t explode on the lathe. I plan on working with as many different burls as I can from now on. I love the wild grain and hidden surprises (irregularities) they have to offer. . This bowl is 6” in diameter and 3” tall. It is finished with Watco Butcher Block oil.
