It’s looks a hell of a lot better in your hands then those of the tree trimmers.
Nice job Dale.
You made a thing of beauty.

Well done, looks great, like the shape. Having made a spalted maple bowl last year I really appreciate the challenges that come with this project. I know that it looks even better than the photo can show.

thank you for the comments. I don’t know about the work of art but i do know it is a lot of fun to take a piece of wood that most thinks is nothing but firewood and TURN it into something better..

Beautiful bowl and nice turning. Spalted maple can be a bugger to turn sometimes.
