    a beautiful gift from Jeff Bower. Made of spalted maple. It will find a very special place in our house for sure. Thank you Jeff!
    And thanks for the two ornaments as well. They will be on the tree for sure.

    In my humble opinion that bowl is just about perfectly shaped for that form and it really lets the wood show itself off. I keep a "small" (there is some disagreement on what small means) sample of "bowls I like" around and that would for sure be one of them if it had landed here.

    Nicely done indeed.

    I agree with Ryan...that bowl has pretty perfect form, IMO. The wood's not too shabby, either. Great job, Jeff, and congrats, Robert!
