Beautiful Spalted Maple

Just finished the bowl. 8" x 2" with 5 coats Formby's tung oil, buffed and then Ren wax and buffed. I call it Bowl of Many Faces. Gorgeous wood.

That is a beautiful bowl. It would be nice to have a whole truck load of that.

Very nice piece PB,
That's some pretty wild looking maple. That's one thing I really like about maple, you never know what you are going to get with it.

Thanks everyone. I have around 30 blanks of the maple and everyone that I have turned so far has been beautiful.

Wow ... that is what I call eye-candy

Beautiful workmanship, and beautiful material -- can't beat the combination.

Beautiful wood, nicely turned.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.
