plain maple bowl

I spent time over the weekend with my woodturning club at the Topsfield Fair, talking about turning, giving demonstrations, simply having fun. One of the pieces I took with me was the rough-turned bowl from the neighbour's maple (thread HERE), and I got to finish turn it. Yesterday I sanded it, signed it, and wiped on a couple of coats of Polyurethane.

This one is going to the wife of the workmate who carved up the logs with his chainsaw.

You really nailed the form of that bowl! Great lines and proportion. Beautiful for such a plain piece of wood.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Thanks - I was hoping for a few distinctive patterns in the wood, but you have to take what nature gives you. Next time a piece turns out like this I might try some staining to try to give it some pop.

Nice bowl. Nice wood burning too.

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

Very nice. Really like the way you finished the bottom. Nice detail.

Good job Duncan,
The curve of the bowl if consistent and the overall shape very nice.

Thank you for sharing Duncan.......

Thanks tcleve I feel it's a huge compliment to be told that somebody wants to base a design on something I made.

Of course you already know that neither the shape nor the sig are really my original work -- everything I've seen others make impacts everything I make myself.

....and that's exactly what I'm doing.
I see a shape that suits my eye and that is what I will try to mimic.

Remember....it's one thing to see an image......it's another thing to actually produce it.

Nice going Duncan
