Well it is time to get busy and start Christmas gifts. This potpourri bowl is the first. This is maple from the crown of the tree. The crown was around 30' in the air and was 4.5 ft in diameter. The trunk was 4' across. It had been topped for years. The guy gave me the crown that had been laying around for a few year. Very pretty wood. The bowl is 5" across and 2.5" tall with wall about 3/16". Finished with Doctor's Workshop Walnut oil/carnauba wax/shellac woodturner finish

Just finished another bowl for one of the nieces. It's cario walnut 6.5" across and 2" tall. Hollowed out to about 3/16" thick.walls. Same finish as the first and I'm still hand rubbing coats on. Cario walnut has some nice color and thanks to Sawdustfactory for trading some wood with me.

Both bowls look great and well finished, have great shapes. Like more the maple, the grain patterns really stand out. Great work!
