Note: NEW RULES
Bidding starts at: $1
You can bid in the comments, or bid by emailing me [link]; it may take a while for an email bid to register because I check my email only once or twice a day.
Whoever bids the most wins. The final price is (winner decides) between $1 more than the second highest bidder, and what they bid. So, if someone bids $50 and you bid $100 and that’s the final bid, you pay whatever you want between $51 and $100. Please do not “auction snipe” with last-minute bids. This is more like a silent auction than Ebay. Pay Here: [paypal]
Auction Closed at $51-$100.
Sapele Wood bowl/platteroid, about 9″ x 2 1/2″ 5/8″ thick walls
It’s hard for a photograph to do justice to this piece of wood. It has a high degree of “chatoyance” – the grain effect in wood that makes it radiant and look three-dimensional. The sides of the bowl particularly show this if you rotate the bowl in light. The inside looks like the bottom is uneven but it’s actually quite smooth. This wood is often sold as ‘mahogany’
Right now I have a pretty good stack of commissions on the bench in various stages between “sketch” and “almost done.” Those of you who are on my build list – your projects are still in progress, fear not! I’m just hitting the “pause” button on a everything while I re-arrange things a bit.
