Description:

This is an elegant "G+" bowl made from solid piece of BLACK CHERRY. I have had this as a roughed bowl blank for years drying. Tall narrow bowls are more difficult to complete and so it sat for the right inspiration to arrive. One of my favorite ever cherry bowls with great figure as well as shape. It is 7.5" in diameter, about 11.5" high and weighs 2 pound(s) 4 ounces.

Black cherry is one of the world’s premier hardwoods. It is very fine grained, has a lovely undulating grain, and, if not stained, oxidizes to a rich chestnut brown color over a relatively short period of time. It is currently the hardwood in most demand in the country. It is a good choice for functional bowls, and just becomes more beautiful over time and with use. The crotch wood bowls and natural edge bowls are spectacular and make wonderful accent pieces around the home or office.
