I recently saw and admired a project from wood_maestro. Thought it kinda funny as I had just started much the same thing. Any ways. Kudos go to Cindy Drozda for the inspiration. Unfortunately I did not have a burl to work with but it is a nice chuck of Maple with a bit of cool grain. Sanded to 800 g. Aniline water dye and 5/6 coats of clear gloss. Finished with 2 coats of paste wax.

Thanks for the kind words folks. I’ve enclosed a shot of the base. !st. I should have entered i ton the bowl so it didn’t slant. @nd Maybe I should have made the base a bit longer.

Lovely representation of Cindy’s work Mark, I have been a huge fan of hers for many years, she has done a couple of trip down here to NZ, our Guild has had her demonstrate, she is a real Class act for sure
cheers

Thank you for sharing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
