Unsure of wood (Maple?) – bowl is 7-1/2” x 2” x 1/8” – finished with BLO & wipe-on poly.
A friend of mine had commented that I could have gone thinner with the walls of a previous bowl. With that bowl I had intentionally gone thick because I felt that the pattern looked heavy and deserved a heavy treatment. Although I know it wasn’t his intention to throw down the gauntlet, I felt a bit of a need to demonstrate. This wood was relatively soft, so I felt 1/8” was prudent (the walls flex easily at this thickness).
