Figured maple bowl *PIC*

>There's the excitement of turning your first bowl, and then there's the excitement of turning your first good bowl. Well, as far as I'm concerned, this is my first good bowl. (you can jump in here if you disagree!)

It's maple with a nice figure, due to its location beneath the intersection with a large branch. I roughed and soaked it a few days ago, but wanted something to take to the local club's show & tell on Thursday so I microwaved it for a while. I got lots of checking, but was able to turn it away.

I waxed the hell out of this, so much that it took 40 minutes to buff out the globs of unnecessary wax that I accidentally applied. 5.5" x 2.75".
