« Part 9: Pecan bowl. Looks like a dog bowl :-) Part 10 of My lathe journeys. series Part 11: ... Maple , walnut, & oak. »

The one on the left is maple. I “clocked” every other piece to have the grain running opposite on each slice. The bowl on the right is a piece of 4X4 I cut from an old fence post. It’s kinda ugly but it gave me more practice (which is what I still need a LOT of)

I like the grain in the fence post one better than the other. Your turnings are looking great.

Joe,
It looks like your turning is coming along nicely.
Keep up the good work.

By the way my sizing gauge works better than I even imagined. I love it, one tool is much easier to master than using 2 tools at the same time.

Have a great and blessed evening, Todd

What specific Maple is it, Joe? Hard Maple? Rock Maple? Soft Maple? Do you know? It sure does have a striking difference layer by layer. It’s an unusual thing you do with it. And wonderful.

Truth be told Mark, I have no idea which kind of maple it is. It’s not very soft like pine but it’s not so hard that it binds up the saw or anything. I’m not really sure how to tell the difference.
