    Some more Spalted Maple

    This little bowl was turned last fall and made it's way to a gallery in Knoxville.. it's 6 1/4 dia by 3 3/4 high, finish is a Ca/BLO combo... the wood was getting a little punky and the CA was to seal the wood.

    I don't think you can see them in the pictures, but it's riddled with worm holes.

    Very nice, Chuck. That's one of my favorite bowl forms, and you used some nice wood to do it with.
