I got this Spalted Ambrosia Maple blank the other day and just finished turning it. Bowl is 8” diameter and 2 1/8” tall. Had fun turning this one and it has a lot of character. I posted different pics of the front of the bowl with the curly look of the grain. Sanded to 600 grit and finished with 2 coats of Myland Friction Polish.
