    Maple Crock

    Plan on using this to hold all of our wooden spoons, spatulas, etc in the kitchen. Lots of curl on this one!

    Maple, 8 diameter x 6 3/8 high x 3/8 thick, sanded to 400 grit and will have several coats of Minwax Gloss Wipe-On Poly. Only has one coat on it at this time so can take photos that show the grain without being hidden by gloss.

    Very nice piece. Steve. Excellent on all counts. My only critique would be to not crop the pictures quite so tight. Particularly with the shape of this piece, I think I'd shoot for having the top and bottom margins about the same width as the side margins.
