well folks after much deliberation hon how to cut a quilted maple slab i decided to do some box blanks from the knot end a bowl blank from the centre and that leaves an offcut to decide on later :roll:
this is what it looked like
i have roughed out the box blanks as normal.
heres the bowl
and heres a walnut one too
overall i'm pleased with the figure of the maple but i think it would be better shown of on a platter.
