Ambrosia Maple Bowl - Green-turned

This ambrosia maple wood bowl measures 8" diameter and 2" high. It was made for an order, and the wood was shipped after the order was placed. There is never any guarantee as to the moisture content of bowl blanks when ordered this way, and it turns out this one was still pretty green. This means that as it dries over the next month or two it will elongate slightly and get a really cool, natural, organic shape to it. It was already a gorgeous piece of wood, and I think it will only get better.
Ambrosia maple is one of my favorite woods to work with. It's regular maple, left moist and warm and exposed to the elements after the tree dies, so that the ambrosia beetle can attack the tree. The beetle bores into the tree, bringing ambrosia fungus spores with it. The fungus attacks and stains the tree and then the beetle can eat the fungus as it reporduces. The net result: Beautifully figured wood. Price as shown: $40.00
