This is a silver maple low bowl that appears to be squatting. It measures 3.25” tall by 9.25” wide and is finished with a wipe-on poly. The wood has some nice flame patterns from the crotch. I tried something a little different with a wide rim. Do you think it works?

Very nice design…. I was thinking it looked like a crotch piece with that grain pattern. Good Work!

WAY COOL! Another great turning Trifern!

I have a mini lathe only, with which I can turn pens and other smaller objects, but whenever I try even a small bowl, there’s not enough power/torque and functional capacity to turn anything larger than a few inches. Your bowls are making me jealous of not having a larger one. If you keep posting these great looking bowls, I’m going to have to blame you if I ever break down and purchase a full size lathe.

Serously, keep up the great work, and thanks for posting!

It more than works, its a masterpiece, it is beautiful, I don’t know how you get such beautiful color out of your turnings with just poly wipe. Man that looks good. what grain do you sand up to.? If you don’t mind me asking. mike

Thanks for all the nice comments.

Blkcherry – we haven’t had many lightening strikes, but we did recently have an earthquake.

Mike – I typically sand through 220 and then hit it with 0000 steel wool. I usually put 3-5 coats of wipe-on poly and hit it with 0000 steel wool between coats.
