Vessel, lathe-turned, hollowed. Verawood (Bulnesia arborea), 6" high x 6.75" wide. Verawood is native to the Caribbean, Central America, northern South America. Coloring of this piece is atypical. Hard, dense, it does not float. I acquired this log section from Michael Tisdale, Homestead, FL, who is in the wood salvage business. Finish is: tung oil/varnish mix; beeswax.
