The top edge is irregular.sold$45
Plum Natural-edge bowl 6 x 2.5This bowl has nice contrast between the dark bark, the creamy sapwood and the tans, browns, and reds of the heartwood.

Plum bowl with bamboo accents6.5 x 2Plum is a pretty wood with rich colors, but is very prone to warping, which is what happened to this bowl. I should have chucked it in the woodstove, but didn't have one, so it hung around until I got the idea of using bamboo to salvage it. I fit a bamboo ring to the base so it would sit flat, and added the bamboo twig to distract the eye from the warping. It kindof works!donated

Cherry bowl with bark inclusion13.5 x 4.5This piece of cherry has beautiful grain. The character of the bowl is enhanced by a bark inclusion.
