Wow , nice job on all of them !
The one you listed as Maple (3rd pic) looks just like Cherry ! What kind of Maple is it ?
Did the salad bowl finish give it the color shown ?

Thanks Dusty56 for pointing out my error. I sent a bunch of bowls over and forgot that one was a Cherry Bowl I sent over a couple weeks ago.

That Cherry one ended up as my best bowl yet, but it wasn’t as large as I had planned. I started with a huge 14” square by 4” deep blank. I had some issues when I was shaping the bottom and ended up catching an edge, twice! Grrr!! On top of that I That’s what I love about turning bowls, my mistakes don’t ruin the whole project.

The photographer is my neighbor and is shooting all my work and designing my website at no charge. He has been a photographer for the Navy & Army Corp for the past 20 years. He is just finishing up a degree in Digital Media and web design and is using my business for his portfolio. He is very meticulous and detailed in his work. There is a big difference between what he did and the pics I take with my Blackberry!
