Digging through my stash of spalted maple I found two pieces with exceptionally wild and crazy pattern in the grain. Not knowing how they might turn out, I gave it a shot. These are the results. The bowl measures 1 3/4” high by 4” wide, and the vase 7” tall by 2-7/8” wide, all outside dimensions. The vase was particulary challenging to hollow out evenly all the way down to the bottom. But with patience and keeping my tools sharp, I managed to get the the sides and bottom a consistent 3/16” in thickness.
