    Another Sugar Maple HF

    No catches on this one! Very simple form, 5 in diameter x 3 high and finished with wipe-on poly.

    Very nice clean lines. I like that you kept the curve, both lower and upper. Very important in my way of thinking. The little upturned lip throws me off just a bit, but that is a personal thing. I like the whole thing with the simple wood and the simple design. Shows a lot about your skills. Nicely done.

    Very nice work, Steve. Form-wise, my personal preference is to have less of a sharp shoulder, more approaching a catenary curve. (I've turned several with shapes similar to this one, too.) My opinion or no, you've made an attractive piece.
