Ambrosia Maple is known to have beautiful colored strips formed by the Ambrosia beetle that at one time was in the wood. It is a very tiny beetle and the kiln drying process stops the beetle, the result is a very beautiful looking piece of wood. This bowl was made from two blocks of wood and I have added decorative lines into the wood. The approximate size W-6 3/4'' x H-3 3/4''. The finish is a mix of Tung Oil and Varnish. Ships in the USA only.
