8" in diameter and 2" tall, this shallow bowl was turned from a piece of Big Leaf Maple Burl. This means that most of the blank was black and covered with lots of ugly wart-looking things! But as my gouge sliced away the ugly, swirls instead of straight grain appeared. And colors! Great care was taken turning through the fissures, although I did leave part of one on the bottom. Several coats of food-safe oil and a carnauba wax buff finished this transformation. <G> The last picture shows the blank I started with!
