This bowl is made from a Maple broussin (not sure if it is the right translation for “loupe de bois” in french). Finish only with beeswax. dimension about 7” overall and the hole in the center about 3” diameter.

That’s great. You won’t find one like that in pottery barn. It looks like the rim has waves and undulations in it. How’d you make it?

Hi Maspara, my French is limited, but I’m guessing you have turned what I call a Maple Burl. Looks good.

BobAnderson : I think what you see is the effect of the grain and the light.
John: Thank you for the precision
Blue77: I always try to keep the wood natural, the nature give us beauty, so I don’t need to modify it!

All: thank you for your comment, I appreciate it.
