    Ken, where do you keep finding these gorgeous pieces of maple? This stuff doesn't grow on trees, ya know? Oh wait...I guess it does.

    Great job. Looks like you nailed the curve...it's very even. It'll make an excellent fruit bowl.

    Ken that his really nice!

    Like me, you pics are not the best(not a hit, just an observation), but man, it don't really matter in this case, as the beauty of the wood and the form shine through!!

    I like the bottom treatment too.

    We should get someone who takes nice pics to post a "How to" thing on taking them.....

    Cheers!
