    My contribution to MAPLE BOWL week!

    Not a bad looking chunk of ebay wood.

    I started this bowl in Anchorage, finish turned the bottom in Arkysaw when I visited Mark C., and just now got around to sloshing some oil on it and buffing it. Measure 7" wide, 2 1/2" tall, and 1/4" walls.





    Any and all comments/critiques welcome.

    That's a sweet piece of Internet wood indeed, Barry. Great job showing it off with that bowl.

    My only critique is that it's too far away to see in person.

    Wow!

    Sure is a good looking chunk of wood, and the form looks great too!

    Nice one!

    The bowl is a beauty Barry. That oil sure did make that wood talk. Well done.
