these are all from the same slab of wood. the red tone to wood is caused by steaming burl under pressure. they were air dried.
i was satisfied with the outcome. take care and fun times in shop,

What are the sizes. I love the look of the burl especially on the inside bottom. Have you ever turned burl green, sanded it and then when it dries there is a leathery texture to the wood. That is how the figure on the inside looks to me. Smooth with a neat texture.

Very nice bowls – great shape and the wood is beautiful. Can you provide me with some more information regarding your steaming/drying process? I am quite interested. Thanks!
