Bowl number 4413 is a hand turned bowl made from Bubinga. Each of my bowls are signed, numbered and dated (year). They are finished with a friction polish that's applied while still on the lathe.

This bowl measures 5 5/8" across and is 7/8" high.

Bubinga - (Guibourtia Demeusei) - also known as African Rosewood, Essingang, Buvenga.
The tree is usually found near rivers and lakebeds as well as swampy areas or forests that are frequently flooded. This is a large tree that can grow up to 150 feet with a diameter of up to 6 feet.
Bubinga trees will have buttresses but almost always with straight boles. Bubinga is a very heavy wood, with weight varying from about 50lbs to 60lbs per cubic foot. Bubinga has many faces it all depends on how it's cut and milled.
The wood is often used by luthiers for harps and other instruments, such as bass guitars, because of its mellow and well-rounded sound. It has been used in drum shells as well. Drum companies such as Tama offer various high-end drum kits with plies of Bubinga in the shells.
Bubinga grows in Cameroons, Gabon and the Ivory Coast of Africa, Zaire, Equatorial Guinea, Congo, Liberia and Nigeria.
