This is a spalted silver maple bowl that I turned on my lathe for the North Texas Wood turners club Christmas banquet auction and when it was done the wife said absolutely not you are not auctioning that off. lol
SO here it remains in my collection until someone offers me enough money to be able to enjoy sleeping on the couch. HAHA
The log was from a dead tree that I cut down in my back yard and turned out way nicer then I could have imagined. It is about 8” in diameter and roughly 4” tall. It took a couple days to turn and finish.
I knick named this the meat slicer bowl because the edge was so sharp the I accidentally touched it while the lathe was spinning down and it sliced the end of my finger open just like a deli meat slicer. So I did sand the edge down to prevent any more injuries from anyone else.
Lesson Learned: Most accidents happen from a DumbA$$ not paying attention to what they (ie. ME) are doing. so don’t be a Dumb@$$. LOL
I really hope you like it and my finger is fine no stitches, but my pride needs some serious help.
