I turned this bowl during the course of the day. I liked the combination of burl and natural edge to it. The burl mainly shows on the base but you can see it on the bottom of the inside. Also there is a pithy area, though small on the side that I firmed up with some superglue. Wonderful stuff. The bowl is 8 1/2" in diameter, 3" high, and 2" deep. The wood was sealed with walnut oil and polished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture. The base may look at bit on the rocky side but it is quite solid. Thanks for looking!
