Alder Bowl Blank Ald66
2.7" x 7" x 10"
This is an oval-shaped Red Alder bowl blank.The wood is an overall peachy-brown color with warm undertones of red and yellow. Alder tends to have a lot of color variation throughout, so please browse the photos to get a sense of this particular piece's character.
This piece has been rough-cut into an oval in the dimensions specified. It was cut by hand, so the edges will need finish-shaping and sanding. Any darkening on the cut surfaces will sand off -- our industrial blades often leave a bit of sorching.
The wood is fully air-dried with moisture content under 10%.There are a few scattered bug holes visible on the faces. One face has a tool gouge mark that is about 1/8" deep.
About the Tree
This Red Alder tree lived a long and healthy life on San Juan Island, Washington. It died naturally and toppled over, probably during one of the wind storms which frequently sweep across the island. You'll enjoy the projects you create from this wood!
