For those of you who have been following my blog series on turning this spalted ambrosia maple bowl thanks for all the comments. This is the finished bowl. Dimension of this bowl are 6 inches high, 11 inches across, and a little less than 3/8 inch thick. I like to leave bowls that will be used a little heavier so they can take abuse. Mylands high speed friction polish, followed by Triple E and Renaissance wax were used as the finish products. The bowl was buffed out on the Beall wheel system. This is the first of three projects to be turned from the same tree. I will also be turning a 16 inch high vase with a narrow opening and a monster sized bowl. Tomorrow I plan on firing up the chain saw to rough out these two pieces.
