This came out of a considerably larger piece than the end product. For a numbers of reasons, including misjudgment the bowl ended up as ~ 8″ in width. The biggest problem was a never ending check / crack. In the end I turned the piece around on the lathe and put the visible check on the bottom. Then the roots at the top had missing piths, so as they were round, I inserted two ebony inlays to stabilize the wood.
