    Couple Spalted Maple Bowls

    Cut up some maple blanks last week and finally got to them yesterday. I could see some spalting when I cut the blanks, but it was kinda punky too. Luckily the only the sap wood was punky and long curlies stated to fly. Both bowls are just under 9". Finished with my homebrew danish oil.

    Those are indeed some lookers Jeff. Nice classic bowls letting the wood shine though, nicely done.

    Sweet wood, and great bowls.

    I see you went extra thin with that first one, lol.

    That spaulted maple is some nice looking wood! And, to say the least the bowls are very well done. Good looking bowls. Good looking wood. There must be a good turner behind them.
