Bowl making is fun but complicated

Posted: January 3, 2012 in Uncategorized

Over the Christmas holiday, we took a stab at turning a bowl. Nathan’s grandpa brought a block of spalted maple. The term spalted means the wood has a pattern which you will hopefully see in the pictures. Grandpa bought a new turning tool with a carbide tip which made for easy and quick turning.

You can make the bowl just about any shape you want but we went with something simple since this was our first bowl. We used a wax finish and polish.
