This is another piece of Michigan chocolate from Larry Merlau. I had someone who wanted to buy a walnut NE bowl contact me through my website, so I got ahold of Larry a couple months back and he took good care of me.
It's 17" by 11 1/2" and about 6" tall at the tips of the wings. It's a little thicker than I'd wanted, but the bark was giving me fits so I quit while I was still ahead. I kind of rushed the drying, so it has a few minor cracks, but nothing I'm concerned about. They add to the look, IMHO. Finish is my standard Formby's and PL buff, with Renaissance wax afterward.
