Cherry Burl Bowl

This very unique piece of wood comes from the Perth Andover area of New Brunswick. I got this and several others when I paid a visit to Maurice Gamblin. If you are ever down that way stop in to his gallery and shop.

The cherry burl was turned for a friend to give to her son for Christmas. If you look closely on the centre right you can make out the cacoons of some insects. I added a bit of  C A  glue so they would not be destroyed while the piece was spinning. There was also some sap crystal left on the side and bottom. The mushroom I turned the other day came from this piece as well.
