Of the bowls I have turned in my 9 months of turning, this is my current favorite. It is about 7” in diameter. I’m really liking this and ambrosia maple. Thanks for checking it out. ;-J

You’ve made a beautiful piece of wood into something that’s even more beautiful. I don’t know which is the most correct statement. The wood makes your bowl look beautiful. Or The turning makes the maple look beautiful.

Delightful work. Very classic and beautiful shape. The wood is of course gorgeous, but this one would look good if you made it from an old fencepost.

Great looking piece! The shape you chose really highlights the beauty of the wood. My hat it off to you. What did you use for a finish?

I love Ambrosia Maple too… I use it alot. What kind of stain did you use? I have had mixed results with stain.
Beautiful bowl!

Thanks Ray. No stain, just the poly. If I wanted to tint it I would prbably attemt with some dye in the poly.
