This is a Florida Cherry salad bowl that I made for a friend. The wood used is still fairly light colored but will darken and gain a beautiful patina with use and age. It has one bead on the outside to give it some detail. It feels great when you handle and use it, you don't want to put it down.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 a fireplace. Even my scraps are used by a friend to smoke BBQ. Size is around 12" dia. x 8" deep. It is about 3/8" thick.
