Live edge western red alder bowl. Dimensions: 9 x4 long high. A one-of-a-kind piece handmade in my shop in southwestern Washington. This room features an exceptional western red ant wood with a natural bark edge.The rich western red alder wood produces beautiful colors in the grain (see photos), with bark intrusions and the natural edge line make it an amazing piece that western red alder become presents a beautiful balance of colors, grain patterns and dimensions. The piece is finished with many layers of polyurethane. This bowl is made from a solid piece of wood that is dried and hand-turned on a turn. This process takes time to dry the wood well before turning it and then as you turn it, it also needs multiple drying to keep the cracking bowl and this process will give you a bowl that will be passed on to future generations. At 9 long and 4 high it's a pretty big bowl that feels sturdy but it's not too heavy it has a polyurethane finish.
