This bowl is of Chineese Chestnut 10" accross and 4" deep. The wood came from a tree which grew at the corner of my workshop. The tree reached over 25' in the air and 12" in diameter before it stoped living and had to be taken down before the tree fell on my shop. The wood has wide growth rings and a wonderful color. The wood cuts easly, sands well, and takes finish well but doesn't hold a lot of detail.
