Hurricanes frighten me. I've lived in Florida all my life so you'd think I'd be used to hurricane season, but the fact is I'd rather deal with palmetto bugs than hurricanes.
HOWEVER, hurricanes are good to me in terms of wood for turning. After Hurricane Irma the Bottle Brush trees along the Treasure Island Causeway were removed. Bottle Brush is interesting wood. It has lots of pits and cracks. The grain has distinctive patterns and it is a rich, dark maroon/pink color.
This bowl is sort of behive shapped with an opening narrow enough to cast a shadow on the contents. If you're looking for a cute place to covertly stash your keys or something else small, this is the bowl for you.
There are two bottle brush boxes in the shop, as well. One is finished so the color matches this bowl and the other is finished to retain a lighter shade of pink. (I was thinking of a little girl's trinket box when I finished the lighter one.)
