This is my first official finished bowl. It turned from a blank of red flame boxelder that I bought off of eBay. What a beautiful and easy wood to work with. I’m really pleased with how it came out and ended up giving it to my sister for her birthday. I’ll definitely be doing more of these as everyone who saw it absolutely loved it! Comments and criticism welcome.

That is one fine bowl! Very very very good. Love the grain of that block. Stunning patterns in the wood. Great job.
