This gorgeous bowl is made from Maple Burl. This small bowl required a variety of tools and chucks to get the bowl shape and tenon cut off. After making the final cuts it was sanded down to 600 grit and then finished with EEE wax and turner’s finish. It is not food safe and is only for decorative purposes.

Beautiful! I like the heavier look and feel of small bowls. This one would be perfect on an entry table as a ‘key catcher’. Very nice work.

Thanks, we’re using it as a candy dish right now.
