    A couple more bowls…

    Finished a couple more bowls today and thought I would post them and get your comments.

    Maple bowl – 7 ¾” x 3”, Watco and buffed. Really liked this maple as the heartwood is extremely dark. Have a few more bowls like this that are finished (waiting to be buffed) and I think the color contrast is amazing.

    As always, your comments/critiques are welcome!

    Thanks for looking!

    Steve they are beauties. I really like the simple form and finish. Well done.

    Very nice, Steve. I had a piece of maple with some dark heartwood a while back, but not nearly as dramatic as yours. Great work.
