Zapote Bowl Blank (8 x 8 x 2-7/8)

This material was cut in the summer of 2015 and is completely wax sealed. It is still contains some residual moisture. There are subtle pink/red tones with golden hues in this species that hails from the Yucatan peninsula. A really high polish is achievable but tools must be kept very sharp for this species as it is abrasive. It is also recommended that you twice turn this wood as it will reduce the proclivity to check.
