    Plain Maple Bowl

    This was turned from one of my few remaining pieces of last year’s maple score. Fairly plain but with a few birdseye scattered throughout just for effect!

    Maple bowl, 10” diameter x 4 ˝” high, rim is 5/16” and the walls taper down to 3/16”, sanded to 400 grit, multiple coats of Minwax Wipe-On Gloss Poly. Will buff it in a few weeks after poly has time to fully cure.

    It looks great to me!
    My wood guy just dropped off some maple to me yesterday so I will be roughing soon.

    Very nice Steve!!

    I really like these so-called "plain and simple" bowls where the beauty of the wood has a chance to shine. I like the wood.

    Steve, I forgot you turned bowls after all the beautiful HF's. Well Done once again.

    Very Nice.. I like the simple bowls too.. this is a beauty.

    I have a few logs of maple that has been "seasoning" in my back yard for a year or so... some of it will be nicely spalted. Need to get out the chain saw and make up some bowl blanks and get busy ..

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    It is a beauty Steve. I like the simple form and finish.

    Lovely bowl, Steve. Sure would look good full of popcorn!
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?
