    A Little Maple Bowl

    When I hooked up with my bud, Geo Conklin the other day he asked me if I had been turning latly and I told him I had been to busy with the business. Well Today I decided that I needed a little R&R so truned this little bowl. It Hard Maple, 2" high and a little over 3" dia.
    It's been over a year since I turned so I guess it's not to bad.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
