Figured maple bowl

I just finished this one the other night. It's a nice piece of maple with some nice figure. It's 15" x 3". I put some beading on the rim and finished it with several coats of lacquer followed by buffing and waxing on the Beale wheels.

Once again Mike, you do not disappoint when it comes to giving us something to be in awe of. Absolutely gorgeous wood and an even better job turning and finishing it. Just beautiful.

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

Nice wood, form, and finish!
Thanks Mike!
