My wife really likes my bowls, so I made her one for our anniversary. It is made from Tiger Maple with only minor figuring but it does have some spalting. It measures 8” in diameter and 3” high. I wish in retrospect that I had made the pedestal a little smaller in Dia. but like my Father told me “Hind Sight is Always 20-20 :) This project has a coat of Minwax sander sealer and six coats of clear gloss wipe on poly and buffed on my Beal System.

All Comments are Welcomed. Thanks for looking!!

Nice looking piece of wood. A great looking bowl. It liooks like a bowl that would sit above some table decorations.

I like this one a lot, the shape is really nice and what a great grain of wood. What finish did you use, looks real nice.

Another beauty!!

If the pedestal were any smaller, the bowl might have a tendency to tip over.

I love it, great wood first of all, I love any maple, this is beautiful, great finish, and the shape is unique and well made, I don’t think a smaller bottom would have looked any better with the thickness of the wood. You did good. I bet she loved it very much. Great job. Mike
