This was an amazing burl that was given to me a while back that i couldnt figure out what to do with it. It was too small to make a bowl from just the solid burl. So i picked an off center starting point, turned it true and added some meat of three of the side to give it some more size and I think it looks really cool. I love the old look of the burl with the contemperary look of the purple and red heart, and the white spacers just add that exra touch. Let me know what you think!

It’s beautiful. You should try some inlays on those voids. Red Coral would be excellent.

A really nice bowl. It warrants more than one picture, to fully appreciate it.

Great way to save a questionable blank. Better safe than sorry. Ask me how I know.
Turned out beautiful.
