Mesquite Bowl Blank M-1071
3.8" x 5.8" x 6"
3.75 lbs.

This is an attractive and fairly burly bowl blank of Texas-grown Honey Mesquite.   This bowl blank should be suitable for a bowl 5 1/2" in diameter and 3 to 3 1/2" deep.

This blank owes much of its beauty to the burl bud clusters and bark/branch inclusions present within it.   These give challenge as well as opportunity.   The annotated face has a large and open vug which is lined with bark.  It extends as an open feature at least an inch into the block and quite possibly further.  It will require filling with epoxy prior to turning.  

There are also a few fine cracks that you may wish to stabilize with CA glue.  I've taken close-ups of each of these areas.  I've taken lots of photos of this piece; please scroll down below the first 3 to see all of them.
