    Spalted Bowl w/HF pic

    Here is another finished Spalted Maple Bowl. This one is about 6.5 inches at the top. Finish is 2 coats of Shellac then a couple coats of Wipe on Poly.





    Here is another Hollow Form I'm attempting. I was working on it last night when I decided to bring it up and show my wife the progress. So, since the camera was out I thought I'd take a quick shot of this one just in case it decides to 'blow.' It is about 7.5 inches and about 3 inches high.

    That's some very cool maple, Jon. Nice job. What kind of wood is the hollow form?

    That was my guess. It's gonna look pretty when it's done.

    That's some awesome wood, Jon. The bowl is simply stunning as the HF should be when it's finished.

    both the bowl and HF look great. I really like the metal pedestal, sets off the form so well!

    Seriously, it did take me a half a second to identify the chuck, thought it was some artsy base. which, of course, is true!

    Ned beat me to it

    Love the artsy expensive base on the HF

    The wood is just super, I hope you have a truck full of it

    The bowl is very nice, and the hollow form has great potential, I have my fingers crossed that it survives the ride!
