Pecan Bowl Blank P-449
2.7" x 5.2" x 5.6"
This is a modest-sized half-log Pecan bowl blank. The colors include the creamy light brown shades of Pecan heartwood and the milk-chocolate browns of Pecan bark. It has full bark on the backside and is well suited for a natural edge bowl as well as for a conventional bowl. Were I turning this blank, my choice would be a natural-edge bowl form.
This bowl blank is GREEN to partially air-dried. It is a half-log bowl blank cut through the pith. The blank has been carefully sealed with Anchor Seal to slow the drying and reduce the chance of cracks forming.
I see no significant cracks, but there are several very thin drying checks present that may be too thin to see on the photos. I would reinforce these with thin CA glue before turning.
