Mesquite Bowl Blank M-1074
2.9" x 6" x 6"
This is an attractive Mesquite bowl blank. It as a natural face along one edge, with sapwood and underbark. This is suitable for a traditional bowl, or you could flip it on its side and go for small turnings that would allow you to preserve the natural edge. Lots of options with this one!
The colors include the rich reddish-brown of Mesquite heartwood, the beige tones of Mesquite sapwood, and the stripey brown of Mesquite underbark. There are some beautiful burl buds and rays that radiate through the block. The grain is complex enough to produce some very pretty swirls in the finished bowl.
This mesquite piece has been air-dried to 10-12% moisture content. There are some cracks present that we have stabilized with clear CA glue. The wood is hard, dense, and ready to turn.
