Here is a bowl I just made. It was a nice piece of figured maple. Finished it off with some walnut oil and then some wipe on poly.

Looks Great. Now did the Walnut Oil darken it ? Now why can’t I find Maple like that. Maybe a road trip to the Great White North.

Beautiful bowl and excellent turning. I like the clean, simple design. The beauty here is the wood and you designed this to show-off the wood. Great job!

Thanks Guys. It was dark to start with but when I put the walnut oil on all the grain really popped out. It’s not a huge bowl, 6” in diameter and 3 1/4” tall. I kept it simple just like I make all my projects. Simple clean lines and let the beauty of the wood do the talkin :)
