    Simple Maple Bowl

    I was very pleased with how well this bowl took a finish! Lots of different colors in the wood, great grain patterns and the bowl reflects light like it is lit up from within!

    Maple bowl, 11 x 3 x 3/8, 2 coats of Watco Natural and buffed.

    You're making things harder and harder for the nit-pickers among us! Love the bowl, especially the dark wood "slash" ... and the "all seeing eye" in the grain in the first pic.

    The only nit I can find is that maybe the last pic is a little too well-lit from the right? (The lower outer curve gets a little lost in the background on that side.)

    Great job!
