    So, in preparation for a small local show a couple of months ago, I came across a piece of bocote and a piece of zebrawood that I had forgotten about. Such a unique grain in these two species! Bocote, of course, is the one at the top and zebrawood at the bottom.

    Bocote is beautiful. I hate the smell of some zebra wood. Bowl looks nice...
