Maple Bowl #43

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.

It looks like it “turned” (get it) out well…

Nice stuff.

Beautiful flow to this. It is really a nice job and the save you made was ingenious.

I like it Jim, walls only 0.15” or in our language about 3.8mm, my latest and I think best yet is still a touch over 6mm. I’ll keep trying!

Great job, looks awesome. I was thinking, God gave the tree, you took part of the tree, using God given talent and made the bowl, you passed the bowl on to some lucky winner for the church, money goes to help further God’s work.
What a blessing he have to live and be able to worship as we please and continue on the life cycle that God has provided.
Not preaching to anyone but you can not admit the life cycle is great.

Thanks for all the nice comments.

Harry, I used my spring caliper to follow the shape for uniform wall thickness, but I did not have a cool one like you have with a digital read out!!!!!! ..a new tool to buy when I thought I had them all. I’m thinking I need one with roller tips so I don’t gouge the finished outer surface

Mr Tom. Don’t you just love that cycle!! It makes you feel better than selling it!!

Michelle, I hope they get a lot of tickets on this one. There were not many items left after the fire because they kept most of them in the church. I brought one wind chime in late and it still was in the office for the raffle. I might get one more item done before next Sun.
..........Jim
