Here is my second bowl. more of a platter really as made from 30mm thick stock. Timber is cypress pine, which is prone to splitting. But this is just a practice piece. It is 220mm in diameter (8.5”). It does have some pretty grain.

I love that the grain shows through on both sides of this piece.

Unusual heartwood/sapwwod mix. Must be where two branches joined. An interesting piece !

Hi guys, thanks for the comments. The timber is actually book matched and joined in the centre. It does give in a nice butterfly effect. Here cypress pine is used as a second grade timber for fence posts, poles etc because it doesn’t rot in the ground. It does move a lot so I don’t know what will happen to this piece… Worth the experiment though.
