This project was a surprise. I purchased this wood because it had an exotic name. I had no idea that it could be 50,000 years old. I cut nicer then black walnut and finished brighter then bloodwood.

Here’s this weeks video: 50,000 Year Old Wood - Bowl

Thanks

Makes for a good conversation piece for sure, and it’s a very pleasant looking nut dish/whatever.

It shows some bee’s wings like QS Cherry or Sycamore. Both are very easy to work, and both finish really well. It would be interesting to see if direct sun gave it a nice suntan. :-)

Now I know some deals can be had when an older woodworker passes on and the family disposes of the lifetime collection at a garage sale for pennies on the dollar, but obviously this has been kept in the family garage, carriage house, Kiva, cave, and passed along over generations for a very long time. Kinda cool to break the cycle and score!

Kidding aside, that is a smart looking bowl and the smooth surfaces really let the wood show what it has to offer!

Of course the wood is great but so is the workmanship and the design. Nice work.
