Started off about 11" tall and 8" in diameter. Final size is about 8 1/2" by 7ish. The line was not a crack but separation from pouring two separate batches of alumilite. I was hoping to get the separation to look like a wave. The wood is madrone burl and the alumilite has just a hint (just the tip of a mixing stick) of interference green that was mixed in about 6oz of alumilite.
