    Curly Spalted Ambrosia Maple Bowl

    This is yet even more maple I got from Robert Mickley (the last piece). This one has is all: curly, spalted, ambrosia maple. It's about 14" wide x 3 1/2" tall with extra thick walls. This one is just Antique Oil...no lacquer, buffed.

    Very nice work again, hugely striking piece of wood

    Another winner! The wood is spectacular but so is the form and finish. You did the wood justice!
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    That sure is some amazing wood and you really made the most out of each piece! Very nice work Vaughn - beautiful flowing form, great markings and I really like the soft finish! Hope you are able to find some more of this wood real soon! Thanks for posting!

    Outstanding! Beautiful wood. I think the thickness is right-on for the scale of the piece. I'm kicking myself for not getting some of the blanks Robert offered Barry

    Great job on a beautiful bowl. That wood is sure pretty. Form and finish look good.

    Beautiful, as always, Vaughn!
    A shame to run out of wood like that.
    It sure doesn't just grow on trees around here!
