This is a piece of maple I brought out from NC. There were some pretty good longitudinal cracks, so I left it a little thicker than I usually would. Some great color on this like the platter I did. Form is 10"x6" and about 1/4" wall thickness. Finish is Dr Workshop Walnut Oil. There are several cracks around the neck, so undecided if I'll so a finial for it.
P.S. My photo gradient background finally came in.
