Project Information

Spalted Maple 8 1/2" x 2 1/2"
Friction Finish (Shellac/BLO/DNA)

The last few weeks I've been roughing out a lot of these bowls. As I was roughing this one out it seemed to be dry enough. So I went ahead and finished it out completely. This is from the log in one of the pictures. Only cut it up 2 weeks ago.

It's beautiful. Amazing what "almost" rotted wood looks like. :)

Yes…. it seems like it is always guesswork into catching it just right.

Thank you, I think there are trees that take to it and some that do not. For bowls, unless it is figured or crotched. Maple is pretty boring wood. So, when I get some straight pieces, I set them out for a while.
