Here is a vessel made out of some spalted silver maple. The foot is English Walnut. I attempted to make a poached egg. Finish is a Minwax gloss wipe on. This is my 5th bowl that I have turned.

Thanks for the compliments!

This wood turns fantastic. I think there was a question regarding size and it is about 8” tall and 5” wide

The block below this one was for the fundraising auction for the Charlotte Woodturners club.

Gorgeous grain shown to great advantage. Finish is just glossy enough to set it off. Very beautiful. I’m surprised it’s only 4×8 inches, it looks larger. Needs something in picture to give scale, I guess. An egg or an antique egg spoon would look very nice with it. :-)

Pretty piece and beautiful wood. It took some good tool technique to get such a nice finish.
