This is the first bowl that I turned, in the Fall of 2003, during a short course I took from an experienced turner. I then decided to keep going on my own. This bowl was turned from a piece of "green" spalted maple. By "green" I mean that the wood was still wet when the bowl was turned (the tree had just been cut down a couple days before, in fact). Bowls that are turned green often dry in unusual ways.
