Ambrosia Maple hollow form 12 inches in diameter and 6 inches high. Wall thickness just under 1/8”. Finished with clear satin Waterlox. Lots of beetle staining and a bunch of beetle holes. Took longer to clean out the holes than what it did to turn the piece. Just need to buff it up and send it to it’s new owner.

I love my Ambrosia maple. Great turning.

Very nice piece Jeff. You have some excellent other turned projects as well. Great job on the hats I’d like to try one some day.

Have your say...
