This is a distorted albeit gorgeous Butternut wood bowl 9-1/4" in diameter, 3-9/16 tall and the inside bowl depth is 2-9/16" Although it wasn't turned from a burl it came from a blank that had knots, convoluted grain and a bark inclusion which made for an interesting bowl. It has a small live edge along with some flanking sapwood as well. It has been finished with two coats of oil based polyurethane and the slab was seasoned well but it still went wild after turning due to flat grain. Please note burl bowls are the most stable do to lack of lineal grain direction and this one obviously is not. Sadly it is too cold in much of the Adirondacks for butternut to grow naturally. It does occur in the margins of the park under 1000' in elevation according to "Adiondack Upland Flora" by Michael Kudish.
