Two-wooded bowl

Tony Shaftel
>I'm posting this bowl not for the craftsmanship but because of what it's made of. In upstate California the trees in the walnut groves are English Walnut grafted onto Black Walnut root stock. When my brother-in-law heard of some trees coming down he let me know and I drove up to get the black walnut stumps. A couple of the stumps had some English Walnut still attached and I purposely cut a blank or two that contained both woods. This is the first one to be finished. It may appear at first glance to be heartwood and sapwood but it's not, it's two different woods!
