The bowl came from a section of 40” diameter Maple tree. The diameter of the bowl is 14” and is 9” tall. This tree had been down for about a year and a fellow woodturner and I tackled the monster tree trunk and it had some very nice spalting to it. The is the largest bowl that I have turned on my lathe and made a great birthday present for my mom. She love the spalting in the bowl and really like this large bowl. Thanks for looking.

Gorgeous, Mike!

I really like the shape!

Looks like the wood was solid and not pithy like some spalted maple.
