Finally got back behind the lathe over the past few weeks to get some Christmas gifts started.
The first present I completed is is a bowl I turned for my mother in law from Ambrosia Maple. The bowl is approximately 6.5” in diameter and nearly 3” tall.
Finish is spray laquer.
I was going for a simple shape to begin with, but had a catch near the upper lip, hence the design change and detail around the rim. While not exactly what I had in mind, I am pleased with how it turned out.
This piece of wood was full of some nice figure and the brown staining typical of ambrosia maple… ...even had some streaks of pink although I don’t think that the pictures pick it up.
Thanks for looking, comments are always welcome!
