This Sugar Maple candy dish was turned from some wood blanks I ordered from LJ Camerongagnon. I saw his post with the huge slab benches and loved the look of the wood. This turned very nicely and I finished it with Wipe on Poly. It measures 3” H x 5 3/4” D. I also turned another one from the same piece of wood but it is still in process of receiving coats of Poly.

Comments and critiques welcomed. Thanks for looking.

Your project came out super nice.
That figuring is incredible.
Sugar Maple rocks the house!
But I think there is something wrong with your post. The zoom in pictures all came out real little.
(on my machine anyway.)

Great bowl. Nice shape and you picked a beautiful piece of wood.

Keep it up.
