    Big Leaf Maple Vase

    Here is a turning from my stash that I got from Mike Smith. It is a big leaf maple vase that is 9 1/2" X 3 1/2". Finished with 6 coats of Wipe On Poly. This one goes in my collection. I was really happy with it.

    Bernie, I love big leaf maple. This is a nice piece of work.

    I have some big leaf maple scraps that I got from Mike that I have been using for boxes and birdhouse ornaments.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    I think BLM is one of the prettiest woods there is.
    And, you did it great homage.

    Thanks again. Mike I need to get some more from Mike. That was some nice turning stuff. Hopefully he will have some nice 3 x 3 around.
