Maple burl bowl – my first burl. A friend at work gave me a maple burl, this is only half as it was to big for my lathe. So I made two blocks instead of 1. Left it with some of the natural bark, and not a flat top as I thought added some extra character. It was a fun project and everystep of turning there was something new to see within the wood. He is going to give it to his mom as a birthday present.

I am making one too! A maple tree fell during the Sandy storm and there was a burl I had my eye one pretty high up in the tree. I never thought I was going to be able to walk up and just cut it off. I have lots of firewood too! Anyway the bowl looks great!
