Beech Burr Bowl

Collected this small burr while i was out on a bimble with hugo & Rockmonkey earlier this week, it's been sat in a ziplock since i got it home, so with a couple of hours before the F1 from Spa started this morning, i attacked it with the tools. Two hours later i had this, only tools used were a Mora 510 and a spoon knife, the wood being fresh cut (from a dying tree) was/is still very wet, but as is the nature of Burrs, it didn't make carving it any easier, due to the huge number of direction changes in the grain. I just have to wait for it to dry out before i can get the finishing touches made to it.
