Variations on a Maple theme

I can’t believe it’s been so long since I posted a project. Here are three bowls each made from a 8”-dia x 2” piece of figured maple. The first is a more standard bowl, the second has a wider rim and the third has a very wide rim and thick walls to show off the figure in the wood. On the 3rd bowl, the black line is a groove blackened by holding a piece of Formica sample in the groove until the friction heat chars the woo0d. All pieces were sanded to 2000 grit, had 3 coats of tung oil applied and were buffed with the Beall system.

Beautiful, work like this makes me forget these bowls were just a tree at one time.
