After I made the Easter Plant Pot that has a band of Padauk around its center I wanted to make a bowl of solid Padauk. Here it is.

It’s 6” in diameter and 2” tall and finished with Ultra Shine and Shellawax.

The combnation of the rich red and orange tones of the Padauk and the polish reminds me of fire.
