I got a chance to pick up a couple of hunks of East Indian Rosewood awhile back. The first 3 pics are of a bowl made from a large chunk. It’s 9 1/4” x 4”. I managed to get the wall thickness down to just over an eighth of an inch. That’s pretty thin for me. The second bowl is 1 1/4” x 4 1/8”. It was made form the smallest piece of another chunk that was cored out into 3 bowls. This blank had a hole in it from the screw chuck so I used a new penny on the bottom and a small mirror inside the bottom of the bowl to hid the hole. Thie wood in these bowls has some absolutely gorgeous grain and color to it. My wife laid claim to the larger bowl so ti will stay here at home. The smaller bowl may be a raffle item at our club meeting tonight.
