This is a curly maple bowl I made this weekend. Its about 8” in dia. and 2” tall. I finished it with three coats of arm-r-seal. Thanks for looking.

I like big bowls. Maybe because I have’t had the opportunity to make myself a larger bowl.
You made a very nice one !

I can see the curl. But that doesn’t look like any maple that I’ve seen.

It looks like visible pores in the growth rings area.

Nice job on the bowl.

Nice bowl. I just got a Delta lathe and can’t wait to start making my own bowls.

Have your say...
