So i turned two small bowls yesterday, someone gave me a few small chunks of Silver Maple Burl from a tree he cut down earlier in the year. After a few small cuts on the bandsaw i chucked them on the lathe and went at them. The first one got a little thin on the outer edge and exploded whilst i was turning the inside, i glued it back together and then turned this one. This one stands just over an inch and a half and almost four inches across. I am starting to like this turning bowls.
