Ambrosia Maple

I finished this ambrosia maple bowl Mon. night. This is the first ambrosia maple that I have turned. I like it. I bought the blank from Steve Wall Lumber back in December and rough turned the bowl then. It is 3-1/8" X 10-3/4" finished with mineral oil and bees wax.

That is nice looking wood and a nice job with the turning. You should sign your work Eugene.

Geez Eugene, if you keep turning out great looking stuff like that, you are going to run out of room for them. I know a place where you can store some of those nice looking bowls.
Once again, great job. I like the look of the maple and the contrasts in the grain. Cool stuff.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
