The wood is called Ambrosia due to the Ambrosia beetle having infested the maple tree.(one of the beetle's favorites). The beetle bores holes and creates dark brown/black streaking in the wood. The beetles can kill or badly damage the tree.
The holes on this bowl are filled with epoxy/fine coffee ground slurry, so it can be used as a salad bowl. Care and feeding instructions come with the bowl.
