This started out as a big chunk of spalted maple that a friend of mine had spinning on the lathe. After the tenon sheared off, he was left less than a quarter inch of mass on the bottom, so he couldn’t safely get it mounted on the lathe, and the project was scrapped. I claimed it, shaped it, and then i took a butane torch to it. Turned out …..interesting.

I think am going to start using the jack tumbler for size reference from now on. 10 inches across and 6 inches high, finished with boiled linseed oil and paste wax.

Interesting shape and techniques! So, is it a BBQ Potato chip bowl?

BBQ chip bowl, I think you might be on to something… might have to start a new line of pieces…. bbq bowls.
