"Charlotte's Bowl" ---Mesquite

This the other project I finished this past weekend.
My resident critics/friends aka coffee buddies were the first to critique and gave the name.
It's a larger bowl ~13 x 4 inches. Originally had the intention of coring this one, but that failed when it came out in pieces. The pattern in the side took the epoxy and turquoise well, which led to the naming. Finish is semi gloss poly.

and I like gnarly wood--outcome is always better than the start.

Cool bowl Dave.
I'm not usually a big fan of the turquoise, but in this case, the spider shape does it well.

Beautiful work, Dave. I like the literary alliteration of the title ... it fits perfectly.

Mesquite is also my favorite wood, but coring is not something that has a high success rate because of internal flaws (the very thing that makes mesquite so attractive to me). My definition of mesquite is, "the perfect wood that is full of imperfections".
