Black Locust Burl Bowl #1

This tiny bowl is 3.5 inches in diameter and 1.5 inches deep. It is made from a piece of burl wood from a Black Locust tree salvaged from a garden in Beaverton, Oregon in 2013. It has a back inclusion which is partially filled with red stone inlay. The picture below shows a close-up of the figures in the burl wood. This wood is very hard and dense and polishes to a fine finish, like marble. The piece is finished using pure tung oil.
