    Small Maple Bowl

    Turned a small Maple bowl a couple of days ago – just to make sure I remembered how. Roughed out the blank this past summer and then soaked in DNA for a few hours. Couldn’t believe how light weight the blank was when I unwrapped it! Had to have been real dry!

    Bowl is 7 5/8” in diameter x 2 ¾” high. Sanded to 400, a few coats of Antique Oil and then buffed.

    Very nice! Perfect for cold cereal ... uh, if that would even be allowed.
