    Maple Bowl

    While I'm not in love with the lathe like some of you folks, I do occasionally make a bowl or two. This one is big leaf maple, finished with garnet shellac.

    Nice bowl Jim. Did you take any other pictures? Such as various stages by any chance. So far I have only turned made up slabs. This looks like a single piece of maple. Was it a log or a square block when you started out?
    cheers

    Sorry, but that's the only pic I took.

    It started as a 4" thick blank, cut from a log section, but it was dry - not green - when I turned it.

    I'm not sure I'd call it love...it seems to me it's more of an affliction than anything else.

    That's a fine-looking bowl, Jim. Good job for a flat-minded guy like you.
