Deep And Wide And Teal

A bigger piece here, this red oak bowl with a natural edge. The bark of the red oak tree is cork-like in its thickness and here lends two extra layers of color to the cross-sectional view; in total there are four distinct color bands. Subtle grain features are unlocked by the application of the teal-colored dye on the outside surface of the piece, in particular the medullary rays of the oak family’s wood. These are the light bands that run roughly up-and-down. Many coats of shellac build to a glossy finish, though oak has so much grain texture the gloss runs in patterns — a neat effect, actually.
