This a bowl turned from Florida cherry with the exterior covered in beads top to bottom. The beads add some eye appeal and feel good when you pick up with you hands. 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. Size is aprox 10" dia. x 8" tall and 3/16" thick.
