Wanting try a natural edge bowl I used the remaining wood from my neighbors tree. I did not put any finish on this since it was quite wet when I got near the bottom.

The fourth picture has a huge crack in the bowl and I was heartborken when I saw it.. To little patience to wait for the drying process. But an unusual thing happened after it sat in the window for a day.. The bowl shrunk and the crack closed.!! You can’t even tell where it was.. AMAZING..

So this the miracle grapefruit bowl.!

Your grapefruit wood is awesome. Like the natural edge and the pretty grains. Well done!
