I haven’t spent much time in the shop lately. I bought a new guitar a few weeks ago, and I’ve been indulging that particular hobby more as of late. Yesterday, though, I had the urge to make some sawdust, so I went into the shop and grabbed a bowl blank from the pile. It looked like ambrosia maple, but I wasn’t sure until I started turning it.
The great thing about turning small bowls is that you can go from start to finish in an hour or so. It satisfies my need for immediate gratification. :-) This one is simply buffed on my three-wheel system. No other finish was used on the outside. I wiped a coat of poly on the inside.
It took longer to photograph than it took to make.
