Default Dalmation Wood Bowl

Made this bowl from a piece of wood I got from my local Woodcrafters called Dalmation. It is very very dense hard to cut and sand but will polish very nicely. I used homemade mineral oil/bees wax paste to finish this bowl.

I LIKE it! That is some wonderful graining in the wood -- although I must say I was expecting polka dots. Great job on the bowl!

DW -- Beautiful wood and it makes a stunning bowl. Did you rotate the rings?

Jim I did rotate them a little just enough so that the glue joints did not line up. I glued two 3 1/2 inch wide pieces together to make the blank so I did not want a glue line showing if possible.
