This piece started with with a large slab that had been drying for 10 years and not a crack in it. Extremely dry all the way through, it was an exercise in patience and sharpening the bowl gouge every couple minutes while taking 1/16” cuts at a time. This took 6 hours to make.

This photo is shown with the first coat of mineral oil.
