Introduction: Natural Edge Maple Bowl

Picture of Natural Edge Maple Bowl

I have just completed my latest project, these are some photographs of a Natural Edge Bowl made out of Big Leaf Maple (Acer macrophyllum). It is 12" in diameter and 3" to 5" tall.

A tree was given to me; two other friends and myself fell and cut the tree into logs. We used a portable saw mill to mill the logs into various size cants for each of our individual projects.

The grain pattern is often called "fiddle back". Terms differ with regions.

Don't forget to sign your project.

A nice center piece. I was going to sell this but my wife said "NO", she wants it.
