    Shallow Maple Burl bowl

    Turned from a piece of scrap that I brought home from my AAW chapter. 8"x2". This bowl weighs very little. It was extremely light prior to finishing, and still is, but the finish added noticeably to the weight. I began with BLO, which completely soaked in. Two more coats of BLO, then a couple coats of DO, then a 50/50 mix of DO and poly, and finally a couple coats of straight poly. I let the finish sit and cure thoroughly, then buffed it.

    This is one of many pieces I'll be offering at an upcoming show.

    Beautiful finish Mark. It does look very light. Well Done.

    Mark, that sure is purdy. Just what I like, clean simple arch with beautiful wood. Can't ask for much better.

    Well, now that you've done this one, you should try a thin bowl, just for some variety.

    This is one of your best pieces, IMHO. Price it accordingly.
