There is some figuring in this piece of maple, but I thought it was stable, and it was, until I started cutting into it. Only when I got it thinner I found a small crack in the figured area. Thankfully the crack proved stable.
It could be used without a dip bowl or with one that I bought at Ikea.
Sanded up through the grits through to 400, then finished with Watco brand “Butcher Block Finish”

Love the contrast and the figure in that maple. Excellent finish.

It started as a cut off from a 9 inch wide board that was 1 inch thick rough. I cut it an an angle and glued in the accent wood (I forget what kind), then I cut off the corners with a chop saw before turning it. Ended up at about 8 1/4 in diameter and about 3/4 inch thick.
