This bowl is 2ft wide and 10 inches deep. Crappiest piece of driftwood I ever saw. My philosophy with wood is “the uglier on the outside….the more beautiful on the inside. It definitely proved to be in this piece.

Steve that bowl has a lot of motion and change of direction going on. Yes you did reach into the heart of this piece of driftwood to expose the beauty inside!!!!!!!
