This is a cherry bowl turned from local Florida cherry. It has small beads to give some texture to the exterior it feels great tin your hands. The size is 12" dia x 12" tall x 3/16" thk. The Florida cherry has some of the most beautiful color and grain you will find and as it ages it gets even more patina and color. All of the wood that I use is recycled wood that was headed for my local landfill or fireplace. Even my scraps are used by a friend to smoke BBQ.
