A gorgeous bowl indeed, I also like the way the brass filings fill the cracks and add another dimension to the bowl.

You have certainly made the most of this piece of timber, the end result has an ancient almost medevial antique type of look to it
nicely done

Ain’t maple burl great? You just never know what beautiful grain Mother Nature placed inside for turners to reveal. Great Job!!
