African Mahogany Bowl

Type of wood:

African mahogany and maple

About the project:

The bowl was made from a beautiful piece of African mahogany with a maple accent added. It is about 12-1/2″ in diameter and 5-1/2″ high. The African mahogany was a new experience for me. The wood was very dense and this particular board had a lot of interwoven grain. It was slow to cut and tools dulled very quickly. The end result was worth the effort. The picture above does not do it justice. There is a great chatoyance visible after adding Danish oil. It just doesn’t show in a photograph.
