Log dump maple *PIC*

Mike Schwing from Md.
>Silver maple that is. Chris Keuhn and I found the logs that this came from at the local dump. Too hot to do anything outside this afternoon, so I finish turned this bowl instead.

14" diameter, left pretty thick, sanded to 12000 with micro mesh and then given one coat of butcher's wax. Really wanted to leave it natural but those damned fingerprints eventually discolor it in spots. Figured this would discolor it evenly all over.

Comments welcomed, and thanks for looking.
