This bowl is hand turned from "bird's-eye" Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens). This Redwood is from a salvaged stump. It has a gorgeous grain patterns and one small bark inclusion on the lip. The color is a little lighter than most redwood and it has some dramatic color bands running through it. The sides are 3\/16" thick at the lip making this bowl very light in weight. It has three coats of commercial "food safe" finish and then one coat of salad bowl bees wax polish. It is 4 3\/4" high by 12" across.
