This is my second bowl, spalted maple from a tree that blew over last winter. I filled a void with padauk dust and CA glue then got a little cocky and decided to add a copper inlay. Finished with Odie’s Oil.

This one bowls me over! The “cockeyness” paid off!

Good work thanks for showing here!

Hope you have a lot of that tree so you can turn more beautiful bowls. Those are great.

Thanks for the kind words. I do have a good bit of the tree but unfortunately much of it is too punky, fill with critters or plain rotten. I started turning a sizeable chunk a few days and suddenly ants spun out, all over me and the shop! Bet they were dizzy.

Another great one. Some times the worn or bug holes makes a bowl very interesting. Keep turning and looking and you may be surprised what you can find under the so called bad wood.
