A recently finished project, Florida keys mahogany bowl 16” diameter with 12 legs that transform into a natural leaf pattern that hold up the bowl inside, all one piece. Care was taken to include the sapwood around the entire rim to inhance the overall effect. Won “Best in Show” at the Treasure Coast Woodcarvers show in Jensen Beach, FL
