Pecan Natural Edge Bowl, 12"x7"
Pecan is a fruitwood, land like all fruitwoods they are tightly grained. When sanded and finished the wood is porcelain smooth to the touch. The holes in the wood were caused by wood borers that have long since moved on. The results are a unique look that really adds to the turning. The natural voids in the wood have been filled with brass inlay. The artist added a pedestal for the base, and some beading and texturizing to the underside. It is finished with Danish Oil.
