Rusticated footed bowl made of Cocobolo (dalbergia Retusa). The rustication is a product of making the best of a punky piece of wood that perhaps would have otherwise ended up in the fire pile. Thoughts on the outcome?

More pictures of the bowl would have been nice, hard to judge total effect from 2 pictures shown. What is seen looks good.

Amazing technique, well done, nice method for saving the punky piece.

I think I like it, photos a bit out of focus though.

What did you use to get the effect?
