This was from a Maple tree I was given in 11/09.

This is my first attempt at turning in reverse, that way was a lot easier getting under the rim.

Another nice bowl. Turning in reverse sounds like it has advantages. Nice shape and finish.

Keep it up. And welcome to LJ’s

It is a real beaut, to say the least. Welcome to the Jocks.

Nice bowl. Just wondering how thin it is. In the photos it looks as if some light is coming through the wood at the bottom? I remember seeing some work by a woodturner in Hawaii that always turned thin enough to allow light through.

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)

Hi Spoon,
You are correct, you are seeing light coming through the bottom. It’s very thin, the bowl weighs only ounces.

Hi Mahadevwood,

This bowl is finished with Shellawax, then a final layer of carnuba wax.

I recently got a buffing system and need to give that a try on this bowl too.
