So my brother and I were making a stop at Dunkin Donuts and noticed they had two 4’x4’x 2” pieces of maple countertop they were getting rid of. They said they were remodeling and if we wanted the old countertop it was ours. It took everything we had to pick these up and put them in the truck. lol Anyway, I figured I’d share one of the bowls I’ve made from it.

Nice bowl! And that’s an exceptional groundscore. Nicely done.

Nice job! Love the recycling of the old material! What did you put on for a finish?
