This Birch blank had been drying for well over a year. When I cut into it, I had a happy surprise as the streak went through the middle. To highlight this feature, I turned a shallow depression for fruit or an object d’arte. It has several coats of hand-rubbed, and food-safe finish and measures just over 11 1/4″ dia/28.5cm, 1 3/4″/4.4cm high and weighs 2lb, 8oz or about 680 grams. Free shipping to your home in the USA.
