    Maple Bowl w/Scene

    OK, I suppose my imagination is just working overtime but looking into the bowl I see something – do you? Yeah, I know… I’ve been turning too many bowls!

    This is maple 10 ¼” x 3” with a 3/8” rim rapidly tapering to a ¼” thick bowl. Included a few additional photos as the bowl looks very different depending upon viewing angle.

    Very nice, Steve. Very unique and pretty wood for sure. You're a regular turning machine lately.

    My only critique would be to lighten the pics just a tad. They seem a bit dark. Other than that, the bowl looks spot on to me.

    REAL nice bowl, and the first pic does look like a dessert scene or something, just add a few cowboys and your set

    Dunno about the pics, I'm at home on a VERY old apple monitor that is not working so well anymore, everything seems dark on this monitor.

    Steve, is this a kind of mass production what you are doing lately.
    Anyway very nice to see another bowl from your hands, and I like that.
    Oh yes this is a very nice bowl, very well done

    Thanks everyone!

    Vaughn - I knocked the balance down 1 notch - back where I had it before. Hopefully that will lighten things up a little without losing color.

    Stu - if the photos seem to dark to you - let me know and I will bump the balance even more.

    Ad - no mass production here. Spent my summer cutting blanks and roughing out all sorts of bowls and hollow forms. Soaked things in DNA and am only now able to start finish turning them - so it doesn't take that long to have a finished turning for posting.

    Larry - You nailed it! Didn't know if my mind was playing tricks on me or if others would be able to see what I did.

    Great looking bowl Steve. I really like the wood and form.

    Like the figuring on the wood, one of those pieces where the wood speaks louder in a simple form.

    On the monitor I am using at the moment (away from base) the bowl looks a little dull unless contrast is increased a little. Don't know how that compares with the orignal wood though.
