This bowl/vase is around 9 inches in diameter and about 3.5 inches tall. I’ve had the piece of spalted maple from my father-n-law’s farm for quite some time and finally got around to adding the ring around the lip.
I recently turned a piece of birch with Ebony so I decided to dye the walnut and see what happens to the contrast. Walnut is nice without any help and I’ve done quite a few pieces leaving it be, but I kind of liked how this worked out. It takes the color well, but you get the grain that doesn’t come through with ebony (plus a big ebony ring would be $$)
Anyway, let me know what you think! Cheers, Richard
