Mulberry?

Howdy,
I was told this was a piece of mulberry...
It is very colorful and irridescent...
?

The other on the left is locust...

Thanks,
p




...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

Nice what ever it is. Both are for that matter. I like how you finish the bottoms and the flare of the sides on the bowl on the right. What dimensions are they?

djg,
The "mulberry" is +/- 7.75"x2.5", locust 6.5"x2.75"...
The shapes are basic ogee, the wider bowl just a bit more pronounced...
I'm a learnin'...
The bottom detail replaces the skill needed to remove the evidence of mounting.
Thanks,
p

Nice bowls. It looks just like mulberry to me. It will darken (later) to a reddish brown.

I'd second that it's probably mulberry, I turned some recently that looks very similar. Nice looking bowls you have there!

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

I agree, mulberry. To be absolutely sure, check the end grain against that shown on my site. Daren's right about the color change. I was unhappy to learn this the hard way ... several of my segmented bowls have prominent pieces and they've darkened a lot ... also shown on my site ... although not as much as osage orange does.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Thanks All!

Now I can label the bottom.

Those are nos. 15 & 16 of my "first 100" bowls...
It do get easier as you go.

Kind of a shame that the wood darkens considerably, though. It's really good-lookin' stuff...

Reminds me of staghorn sumac that the Good Mr. Hinds introduced me to, but not quite as colorful...

I have several chunks of that stuff that I'll mess with somewhere around bowl #50.

Thanks again,

p
