A friend gave me a large limb from a Myrtle wood tree. AKA-Bay Laurel or Pepper wood tree. It had been drying for a couple of years so I figured I better give it a spin. I made two bowls, this one is 9.5 wide and 6 inches tall. I finished with a sanding sealer then a few coats of Shine Juice.

Thanks for looking, Greg

C&C always welcome!
