This is an ambrosia maple bowl I turned as a Christmas gift for my wife.
It is 9” in diameter and 3” tall
Sanded through 600 and finished with several coats of spray laquer
In the midst of a flurry of Christmas gift turning, I found myself incredibly frustrated with some of the work that I had been doing. (See atlas pen posting)
For some reason, I find bowl turning to be very calming. Something about the long curly shavings flying off the piece and the way a sharp bowl gouge sounds when slicing through a piece of wood like warm butter.
Anyway, this piece helped me keep sane and was well received by my wife.
Hope you all had a great holiday season and thanks so much for looking.
