Here are a few pictures of my second bowl. Spalted Maple with a tung oil finish
Very nice next thing you'll be doing is turning some weed pots..

Oh yea, I am already laying the ground work for a lathe upgrade with loml. So yea I am having fun, despite some set backs.
Wow Joe, that is some crazy grain. Very nice!
Sorry Joe, you can't fool me, that is a platter, not a bowl
The wood, well, my hat is off to you, I would have been scared silly to use such a wonderful chunk of wood on my second bowl
Love the wood and the finish looks right on to.
For me, for my tastes, I don't like the bottom so much, but that is a really personal thing, I think the beauty of the piece would be enhanced by a rounded bottom, to show off more of that lovely wood, instead of the squared off bottom you did, again, personal preference, YMMV
It certainly LOOKS like you are having fun!
Thanks, keep them coming, I'm too darn busy to even dust off my lathe right now

Beautifull piece I love that spaulted wood.
Very nice bowl out of some good looking wood.
