A Maple Bowl With Leather Accent

A Maple Bowl With Leather Accent
Here’s a small Maple bowl that features a leather accent with a couple of turquoise beads and silver findings.

As you no doubt can tell from other photos here onsite that our home is decorated with Native and Southwestern themes. This, I felt, would fit right in.

This is what is sometimes referred to as an enclosed bowl. I was keen on making one of these after seeing one made at the Robert Sorby demo I went to a couple of weeks ago. In fact, I turned it with the midi-sized Hollowmaster that I purchased on special that evening. Yep, it works. 🙂

It is 5″ in diameter and 2 1/4″ tall. It is finished with a couple of coats of beeswax. I believe that the deep color grain contrast, the knot and the crack adds to the ‘authenticity’ of the piece.

Here are some more photos of this piece:
