This is my fifth dye bowl and its quite gorgeous. The wood itself is soft maple with some ambrosia stains which adds excellent contrast. The thing that I like about the dye is it allows you to see the waves of the grain, it almost makes it seem more organic.
This is one of the largest bowls I have ever done, measuring in at 9.75 inches wide, and 3 inches tall this bowl is quite large. This bowl is food safe, when cleaning use a damp cloth but make sure not to fully immerse it in water or any fluid. Please note that small cracks and other irregularities are a natural occurrence in the wood; they are not considered defects.
