    Spalted Maple and Cherry Bowls

    I got a couple more bowls done. The first one is another spalted Maple that is about 8" in diameter. This will be another birthday present for the wife this coming Monday. 3 coats of Tung Oil with some Carnuba buffing.

    The other one is a dark Cherry about 6 inches in diameter. This is finished with first coating of Walnut Oil, and then my food safe wax mixture.

    Man, that maple looks like an animal print. Nice work on both bowls, Jon.

    Very nice work on both bowls. I particularly like the edge on the cherry bowl. The spalting on the maple is pretty wild!!

    cheers eh?

    Nice work. I second the rim compliment on the cherry.

    Love the spalted maple... I have about 1/2 a ton sitting in my back yard to prep and get started turning.

    Jon: both bowls look terrific the cherry one has a really warm tone it makes you want to pick it up. The spalted maple is very lively looking

    Jon,
    I came back to take another look at your spalted maple.... it is breath taking.. I have a couple I've done and at every show, it's usually the first that gets picked up. Mine has a few worm holes and they fascinate people. Mine isn't as nice as yours.

    Thanks everyone.

    Chuck,
    I'd like to take credit for the bowl, but God's handi-work is really at hand. With this spalted stuff... I just try not to get in the way of the wood/pattern. I think simple is best... either that, or I try to use as much as I possibly can from the piece that I have.... just so that I can get as much of the 'design in wood' to be seen.
