    sugar bowl

    I'm not sure what to call this,but it looks like a sugar bowl to me, so that's what i' calling it. it's made of spalted oak,the top is maple with black laquor.

    Certainly looks sweet enough (sorry, I could not help myself)

    Very nice, Steve. I don't recall seeing much spalted oak, but that's sure a neat-looking piece.

    thanks
    As i know i'm still a rookie turner,I appreciate your comments. the piece came from a tree i had to take down about 3 years ago.I built a small house for my son and had to take out a bunch of pines and a coumple oaks to get the septic in.this weekend i got the chain saw out and went looking for some wood and that's what i found.still a bunch more but i have to put the lathe up for awhile. I have 2 child rockers,1 porch rocker, and a gun cab to build on top of my regular job of finishing up a lawyers addition.
