Hey Trey, That is a really nice piece. The burl has a lot of figure
in it. I also like the lip design on top of the bowl.
Looks great.
Let me know if you see any more wood like thet
for sale.

Sweet bowl from a great piece of lumber. I really like the edge treatment at the lip.

I am jealous, as I don’t have a lathe. Nice work. Looks great. I’ll have to figure out a way to make that lathe happen. :) Wipe-on Poly works great. I use that all the time.
