More spring production, these are mostly made from maple I collected last year; great to turn and some nice figure.

This pair of bowls came from a tree that was cut for a road widening; it was a lovely old tree with spreading branches. The crotch figure in this 14″ bowl comes from where a branch left the trunk.

The maple was turning so nicely that I set the bowls below aside and decided not to sand the outside. I don’t sand the exterior of my painted bowls, as the small ridges help distress the paint. I like the feel of the ridges, if you look carefully at the photo’s you will see them. These bowls are about 12″ in diameter and about 5″ deep.
