Another small turned bowl. Spalted maple. I tried to be creative and added some decorative features to the outside instead of just a plain bowl. I had some problems with tear out on the end grains, but after a lot of sanding I decided that the tear out looked neat, almost made it look really old.

I still have to put a finish on it, but you can see that my little girls are asked busy filling it with pretend food.

Maple? You sure? This looks a lot like the pecan I turned.
