I had a piece of maple log in my shop for about 2 years. I started turing it many months ago, but is was so irregular and had so many holes and cracks in it I could not figure out what to do with it. It was however very nicely figured and so interesting that I did not want to throw it out. Well this week I cut it in half. I ran one half through the bandsaw to make some small boards that I will use to build a box. The other half was used to turn this maple bowl. It is about 6 inches in diameter and just over 3 inches high. As I was turning it started to open up a number of times and there were many spots with bark that I dug out or cracks and they were filled with epoxy mixed with either walnut pine or mahogany sawdust.
