    Spalted White Birch Bowl

    Found a bunch of rough outs that I had stashed in the far corner of my shop and forgotten about. This one was roughed out in August of 2006! I need to look around the shop a little more often!

    Spalted White Birch, 9 3/4" diameter x 4 1/2" high x 1/4" thick. Sanded to 320 grit and finished with multiple coats of Minwax Wipe-On Gloss Poly.

    That's another very nice one, Steve. Great wood, and not much to critique in the form...looks superb to me.

    Larry, at Steve's age, every day is filled with little surprises.

    (Sorry Steve, Larry set that one up too big to resist.)
