    Another Spalded Maple Bowl

    This was my first attempt to turn spalted maple. It was quite a learning experience. As a matter of fact, I learned some things I'm not sure I wanted to learn. The bowl is slightly over 11 inches in diameter and was buffed and waxed, no other finish.

    Super nice Bowls George, The first thing I learned turning Spalted Wood was to not breath until I was finished turning it. Spaulted wood will put me in the hospital unless I filter filter filter.
