A little shallow bowl with the purpose of showing off the burl grain that was hidden inside. It is about 7 by 8 inch in size and about 1.5 in deep. I made a foot for it that is less than 1/8 in so it also floats in appearance. Given the size of the free piece it seemed like the only thing that could be made using it.
