I was given a large portion of acia some time ago. I said thank you and took it mainly because I am a skinflint and rarely turn down free wood but boy am I glad I did. I have turned a few bowls from it now and every ion has been beautiful. ( the wood, not the turning) this is the latest. It's 9" dia and 4" deep. A few natural inclusions and bits of bark but it has such lovely markings and colours. This one is turned round bottom.
