Cayman Almond Bowl
This bowl is made from what was a very old almond tree, which I presumed was cut down due to it proximity to the owners home. The pieces were left neatly stack by the road side awaiting garbage collection. When I saw the nice pieces of wood, I just had to stop. Luckly the owner was there, and kindly let me take the stack of wood.
Almond wood contains many knots. So when turning the wood, you are never sure whether it will be successful or not. Luckly I was able to get this nice functional bowl out of part of the trunk. Almond wood has a nice smell, and it turnes nicely. This piece is full of character.
9" wide x 4" deep.
