This is from A White Mulberry that I cut down in my backyard (It was rotting at the base), about 5yrs ago. Most of the logs sat out in the weather until I started reclaiming it this past January. The wood is a bright yellow when milled, but turns a beautiful golden color when it sits in the sun (compare the bowl and bracelet in pic 3). As the wood aged, dark brown streaks appeared along the growth rings and checks, giving wonderful contrast. There is a good deal of chatoyance to this wood as well. Definitely one of my favorites! 6” diameter x 4” high. Walls are ~1/4” thick.
