Sycamore Block Syc-441
1.8" x 7.2" x 7.2"
This is a American Sycamore bowl blank ready to turn or carve. This one was cut from a crotch and shows some beautiful feather figure. It is maple-like in appearance, with the sapwood a tan color and the heartwood a slightly darker tan to peach color. This piece has a lot of color variation and character throughout.
The wood is fully air-dried with moisture content under 10%. This piece has an a couple of fine, open cracks that you should reinforce with CA glue prior to turning. See photos for close-ups. This is a complex-grained piece that may be better suited for an experienced turner.
This will turn into a beautiful bowl.
