This project started as a 6×6x2 blank and the opportunity to work with ironwood for the first time. Love the luster!

There are a lot of different speces that are sometimes called ironwood. Which ironwood is this?

Yeah I’m not sure it would hold water, but maybe it will. Regardless I think it’s a very pretty bowl. Thanks
