>I just working on my 3rd natural edge bowl of the weekend and have a question.
The wood is a beautiful piece of cherry c/w branch cross grain near the bottom third. But there is 1 noticeable crack starting from the top and going halfway into bowl. Then there are numerous small stress cracks present as well.
The color is good; the shape is good and all of the bark remained, so overall the bowl looks good.
But do these cracks detract from the overall design or add "character"? I will post a picture when completed.
