This bowl is large, 17 inches wide and 5 inches high. It was made from cedar log and the inlay was box wood branches cut into wafers and ca glued into a groove I turned into the side of the bowl. Finish is laquer.

Thanks for all the nice comments. The inlay was gel coat dyed black and spread around the branch wafers then bowl re-turned and sanded.
