cherry bowls and maple bowl
I had a good friend name Joe Looper who passed away about 10 years ago. Joe was a very good woodturner and the one who got me into this so deeply. His wife still had some of his roughed out bowls and wanted to know if I would finish them so she could give them to her kids.
Here is the first batch. These are Cherry about 6" across. The other one is Maple burl and is about 4 1/2" across.
I have about 3 or 4 more cherry rough outs and the rest are maple natural edge pieces that I can't put back on the lathe. they will have to be sanded into submission. I believe there are 5 of those. Not looking forward to that task.
