    Dyed Maple Burl Bowl

    I met my neighbor the other day, come to find out he got a Jet mini lathe for Christmas and was trying to learn to turn. He came over last weekend with a big maple burl and we did some turning. It was a bit funny in that all he has is mini tools and the burl was 10" in diameter. We cored his blank and he gave me the core. This is what I came up with. Bowl is 6"x3", finished with WOP. Fun bowl experimenting with dyes. Comments and criticism appreciated.
