I’m lucky because as a woodturner I get to work with some really great looking wood. One of my favorite woods to turn is Curly Maple which is often times referred to as Tiger Stripe Maple or Fiddleback Maple. The set that you see in the pictures is Curly Maple but it also has some Birdseye Maple and Blister Maple in the figure too. The wood is just awesome to look at. Unfortunately my picture-taking ability isn’t good enough to show you what I can see in the wood. That’s probably why I’m a woodturner and not a photographer.
Each of the smaller bowls that you see pictured was taken out of the next larger bowl. That’s a process woodturners call coring. In this set of wooden bowls the largest bowl is 17 inch in diameter, then 13 inches, 10 inches and down to the little bowl which is about 7 or 8 inches in diameter. Please let me know what you think of them.
