Look at what my Granddaughter Alyssa gave to me.
It is 12 by 16 by 3 inch piece of Big Leaf Maple (Acer macrophyllum).
The wood contains both burl and fiddle back figure. The figure in this piece of wood is shallow. Back side of the piece has almost no figure. I turned the bowl so that the figure was on the bottom and as I hollowed out the inside of the bowl the figure was exposed.
The bowl is green and is rough turned to about 1 inch thick, 8 to 10 days in the dryer and it will be ready to finish.
I think she is going want her wood back.
