This started out as a nasty, black, warped blank I saw at WoodCraft. Kept looking, kept passing over at a price of $30. When it finally went on sale for half price I decided to pick it up … and WOW, am I glad I did! The lighting here doesn’t do justice to the beautiful rose color of the wood.

I’ve decided I REALLY love sales and remnant boxes!!

That is a beautiful bowl and the wood is quite striking.

Very nice work … I can see this as a lavabo bowel at church … beautiful!
