I worked on the mystery wood bowl last evening and forgot to post photos. Here they are:
This was supposed to be a monkey puzzle wood bowl. Monkey puzzle wood is red and has a coarse open grain. This is a light-orange and has a fine, closed grain, much like maple. This wood is also harder than monkey puzzle wood as well so I'm betting this is a piece of spalted maple. What ever it is it has quite a bit of staining in it and I think it's going to be really unusual and unique when it's done. So it went into the drying bag too.
