Hello everyone! This is my latest piece and the first one I named, I call it Duality. It’s a wedding present for my wife’s best friend. It’s made of red canarywood with a hint of live edge on it. Finished with a few coats of Lee Valley’s French Polish. That stuff is tricky to apply, learned you can’t put too much on the cloth or it creates streaks with the lacquer. Live and learn!

Thanks everyone! I forgot to mention that it’s 6-3/4” in diameter, the top part is big enough for a tealight candle, as in one of the pictures. They loved it too! Funny enough, she was looking at buying a wood bowl, but couldn’t justify spending 70$ on average. Considering they just got married and they’re having a house built, I don’t blame them.
