Beautiful, Keith. Totara? Is that a tree, or the style of the bowl. I’ve never heard the term. It looks a little like Ficus from all the way over here on the other side of the planet.

Beautiful bowl, Keith. I recently got given some off-cuts, among which I think there is some totara. Looking forward to working with it.
