Australian Chestnut live edge bowl. The wood for this bowl come from a local farmer who had to remove the tree due to damage. I have only had the opportunity to use Australian Chestnut once previously. I have left the bowl with the live edge from the original piece of wood. Whilst drying the wood has developed a couple of cracks that I have attempted to fill with some turquoise resin. You can see small pieces of this in the end of the bowl.
A mix of orange oil, bees wax and carnauba wax have been used to finish the bowl. It is approximately 20cm in length and 5cm deep in the middle.
