This is the first bowl I completed during my studies so far at jockmike2's school of woodturning and coffee house ;)
The piece came from a chunk of Maple Mike had that he thought (knew?) would make a good bowl. I was very skeptical as the wood had some major checks but Mike was able to keep the cracks at bay and we worked through it. We used a Maple stain and a couple coats of poly.
The design is fairly simple and straight forward. I tend to like things of a more simple and rustic nature. The checking I was concerned about actually ended up adding to the piece. This is not my first turning nor an attempt at a bowl, but it is my first completed bowl and I am pretty happy with it.
Happy woodworking all and thanks for viewing,
