A nice natural edge maple bowl that was turned wet, sealed and allowed to dry. I applied finish coats of satin lacquer about two weeks later. The bowl quickly stabilized despite it being a freshly cut and soaking wet.
The bowl measures 10 1/2” X 8 1/2” X 4”. The bark was very cooperative on this bowl, and did not need a lot of gluing like many other bowls I have done. The bowl is available on my Etsy page.
