Large Black Locust Bowl

This sizable bowl tips the scales at almost 5 lbs and runs about 14 1/2 inches across.  It was taken from a badly leaning black locust tree from our own backyard.  Fact is, I had considered naming my business Leaning Locust after that tree.  Ultimately, the tree had to be taken down as it was leaning right over the backyard shop.  Due in part to the extreme forces imparted on the tree by its deviation from plumb, the trunk had some long-standing stress cracks running through it.  These show up in this bowl as the dark streaks near the lip.  The wood grain is very nice, with many years’ growth packed in.  A few grooves placed here and there and a raised band around the top work well with the occasional knot and swirling grain patterns.
