Mel Genge sent in some pictures of two recent bowls.
A Manitoba Maple log has been in my garage for about 2 years sitting on the floor by the over head door accumulating lots of moisture. No cracks had started but there was some spalting. Some of the punky wood did not cut very well so it needed lots of sand paper.
I made two bowls from the log with one regular and one a natural edge .
They are finished with 2 coats of wipe on poly.
