Huisache Bowl Blank H810
5" x 10" x 11"
This is a beautiful half-log bowl blank cut from a crotch of Huisache. The colors are the warm reddish brown of huisache heartwood with beige sapwood and dark brown bark. The bark on the backside is incomplete but is well-attached where present within the crotch. The circle drawn on the front face measures 9.7".
This is a fully air-dried bowl blank, with moisture content measuring under 10%. There are some radial drying cracks visible on the end-grain faces, as shown in the photos. They are mostly in the sapwood. We have treated some of these for you with thin, clear CA glue. You may wish to continue this on any untreated cracks.
The crotch is deep on this one and filled with bark, which will take some care in turning. We recommend it for the more-experienced turner. If you wish to preserve the bark, please secure it with CA glue.
