    Hard Maple NE Winged Bowl

    This is the second of the natural edge winged bowls that I'm working on.
    This one has lots more curl than the last and is a little larger.
    It measures 13 1/2" X 3 1/2" tall and the bowl part is 6 1/4". Finish is Gel Poly and buffed on the beall.

    Jim, this piece is absolutely gorgeous. Like a piece of polished marble. The wood glows. Just wonderful and the inclusions in the bottom make it very interesting. Great job!

    I have done so much with so little for so long I am now qualified to do anything with nothing......

    P.S. If you are interested in plans for any project that I post, just put some money in an envelope and mail it to me and I will keep it.

    the color is pretty much dead on John in the first 2 pics. Don't know why the last one is kinda yellow? I didn't do much to it but reduce the size.

    And then, there's my "favorite" quetion: How do you finish off the foot on those types of pieces? Vacuum chuck? Jamb chuck between centers? Glue some sandpaper to your hand and go back and forth for hours???
