Here is what that hickory looks like on the inside. Carved up on Thursday the 4th. in about 5 hours and weighing about 8 lbs. The spoons took 2 hours apiece. I use to think that cherry was the toughest to finish, I stand corrected. The bowl has lost almost half it's weight in 7 days. There are checks that appeared on the outside end grain after the 2nd day. I think future bowls will need to be bagged so the moisture does not escape the wood cells to fast.
