    The bowl that blacked my eye...

    Stephen Bellinger said we aren't posting as much... thought I might as well show the bowl that flew out of my longworth chuck and smacked me in the eye....

    It's a spalted maple, 10 1/2 inches dia x 3 inches high.. finished with mineral oil... which darkened the wood some...

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Chuck that bowl might of got you, but you won as that's one sharp bowl. That's some great spalting and shape.

    If it wasn't for all the iron in the spalting of that beautiful bowl, maybe it wouldn't have hurt as much.

    I like the bowl much MORE than the eye!!
    Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it
    still sings!
