Hi All:

This is the first project I’ve posted. It’s a Red Mallee burl bowl that I’ve been carving for the past several weeks. I just finished it today and put it on our mantel. I just love the 3 dimensional qualities of this bowl. Carving, sanding, applying several coats of Tung oil and polishing took me longer than it probably should’ve, but I
like the final product. I’m in the midst carving a Brown Mallee burl bowl now. I just loved these Australian burls!!!

Pretty piece…. and pretty piece of wood. It reminds me of waves falling.
