>Silver maple bowl/vase. About 10" high, walls 1/8" all the way down, small foot. Hand sanded, lathe off, to 12000 and Watco'd. Not buffed yet. There is a subtle, sinewy curve to the outside profile that is just barely really visible in this picture.
This silver maple is some lovely stuff. Lot of tear out but it sands clean pretty easily if first stiffened up with sanding sealer.
