This is one of the last bowls from the maple log that was brought in last year. It is one of the bowls that got soaked in the Minwax pre-stain conditioner. I found that the cracks in it were loose to the edge when doing the final sanding and I could not turn it any more, so I finished the piece and then epoxied the cracks and finished it again. That way the epoxy did not discolor the wood around the crack like it would have done if it was raw. This bowl will be auctioned off at our church picnic. It is 8 1/4” x 2 1/2” high with a .150” wall and finished with clear matte spray.
