My first try at turning ambrosia maple, and it turned really nice. The Bowl is about 8” wide and a lil more than 2 inches tall. Finished at 800 grit and treated with hot beeswax and mineral oil, and buffed out to what you see here. I left a few beetle tunnels near the rim of the bowl, to signify the cause of ambrosia maple, and highlight the woods natural beauty. Thanks for looking, hope you like it!

Nice job. I really like ambrosia maple, and the shape of the bottom is quite nice.

Most people are alergic to ambrosia but this one looks quite outstanding.
