I picked up this piece of heavily figured maple In Portland, Oregon about four years ago and finally turned something out of it. It has a lot of curl and burliness to it. I stupidly paid by the pound. I probably brought the circular piece of wood down to about 1/4 of its original size. The inside got pretty deep and was narrow so that made things start to catch on the inside. It is quite beautiful though. Finished it with wax and oil.
