Project #2 - Bowl From a Block

My second project is also made from a block of wood laminate that I found in our garage.

I had no clue what type of wood it was, and with the weathering and aging of the wood, it was almost impossible to tell!

I took the block of wood down to Rare Woods and asked them. They planed the wood for me, and told me that it was Meranti.

The block of wood also had an interesting joint which I want to incorporate into the final bowl. The joint is known as a finger joint.
