This was a piece of Mulberry recovered from the rubbish tip here in Kalbarri

It measures 8 1/4 inches x 2 inches, sanded to 400 and sprayed with clear gloss varnish.

Had a bit of fun keeping the bark edge attached.

Thanks for looking and I hope you like it.

Bob that grain is just too crazy for my eyes, I think I’d have to hold it in my hands to see it properly. Beautiful wood!

The twisted grain really shows off nice Bob. Nice work. I have 2 mulberry blanks I should give them a go.

I think this is one of the wildest grained bowls I’ve seen, and it’s beautiful. What did you sign the bottom with to keep it from smearing after finished. Possibly burned in ? Mike

Hi Mike, Thanks for the feedback, It’s signed with a “Faber-Castell” PITT Artist Pen and allowed to dry overnight. It never smudges,,.

Cheers, Bob

Love the wood and to bowl. I’m such a big fan of odd shaped live edge bowls. A real beauty…....
