Maple Salad Bowl
Jul 29th, 2017 at 5:22pm
 
This piece of soft maple came from the childhood home of a good friend of mine that is a potter. It is 11 1/2" W x 3 3/8" H. It is a piece of wood that came from one of the crouches of the tree and has some non-black line spalting. It also has a small bit of turquoise on the inside of the bowl and a larger area on the outside of the bowl. This is one of my favorite salad bowl turnings. C&C welcomed.

Very nice curve, and the color and figure is one of Nature's best.

Just out of curiosity, do you ever make closed bowls, i.e. the rim is slightly smaller diameter than the side of the bowl?  My experience a closed bowl is much better at keeping things in the bowl.  Of course, the general public is so much more used to seeing open bowls. . .

Great looking bowl, Steve.   I, too, would be interested in knowing what the finish is, and also what the bottom of the foot looks like.

Very pretty piece of timber Steve. Nice job bringing out the beauty that was once hidden.

Thanks everyone for the compliments.  God has done a great job on the grain work. 
The finish is an oil finish that I dip my turnings in.  It is an equal part of BLO, Danish Oil and WOP.  After it drys for about four days, I Beall buff.  In this case, since it is a salad bowl, I did not try to get a high gloss buff on it.

Don--I have seen some of the closed bowls and like their shape.  However, I have not tried to make one yet.

Tony--attached are some pictures of the bottom.

Thanks, Steve. Occasionally it's interesting to see what other people do on the bottoms. I'm trying to decide if I like the foot. I know - it's a personal thing.
