    More Spalted Maple

    Finished these two up this weekend. Back to my thicker, decorative bowls. One of these (maybe both) will go to the couple that saved the log when their maple tree came down in a storm. They asked for a heavy bowl that they can put on the table behind the sofa. Both are about 9" wide and finished with home-brew danish oil. Only have 4 more blanks from this log.

    That's very cool! They turned out very well.

    I'm jealous, Jeff! I have no maple out here where I am. That is good looking work! I like the thicker walls on my bowls as well. I'm not one for the thin sided ones. Good job all the way around!
