Spalted beech fruit bowl

I made this bowl for my brother and his wife a few weeks ago, it was an absolute pleasure to turn and the spalting of the wood was just beautiful.

Not my favourite shape, but that is just personal, beautiful piece of wood though.

You're right, it is personal. The wood was beautiful though. Thanks for your comment.
