Nothing shows off the hidden beauty of wood grain better than a bowl.

Very nice, beautiful grain!

Gorgeous color !….well done !

Measure "at least" twice and cut once

I am not sure what to say.
I stared at it for few minutes and all king of thoughts came through.
The one that stuck is swirling fire to describe the flow of the grain.
It just beautiful. well done.

Nicely done. What drying process did you use? How would you price a bowl of that size?

The glass is always full....

Thanks for comments everyone. The bowl was made from a cedar burl that had been drying for several years. All it needed was a coat of tung oil when it came off the lathe.

Hidden beauty indeed Wow
