This gorgeous piece of wood is from Equatorial Africa, and goes by the name Bubinga or Kevazingo. It is an exceptionally hard wood to work with due to its density. I started this bowl by rough cutting it to round on the bandsaw, then mounted it to the lathe, woodturned it to a shape of my desired style, and carefully sanded and finished. The rich dark red colouring is all natural, sealed with a high gloss food safe finish, complete with a laser imprinted logo (previous branding) on the bottom. It’s the perfect display plate for cupcakes, veggies, grapes, candies, other small yummy items, or jewellery.
