I turned this bowl from a small oak log. It is 21 cm across. The wood was unseasoned and I turned it while it was still green. This allowed the bowl to warp a little as it dried, taking on an oval shape and some surface texture. The dead tree was cut down after it had been standing for some time. During this period its sapwood began to spalt, giving it paler and darker patches. It was also attacked by wood boring insects. Their tunnels are visible on the surface where the tools cut into them. This would make a good fruit bowl.
