This is a bowl that I entitled Yin Yang due to how much the sap wood and heartwood look like a Yin Yang symbol. Actually, my wife noticed it first and dubbed it Yin Yang. It currently graces our bookshelf along with most of my other turnings as we currently have no other place to put them.

The wood is maple and the finish is three coats of General Finishes Salad Bowl Oil.
