i finished up a nice bowl today, it is maple with cherry and walnut inlays.

This is a maple bowl I had turned to a ruff stage, then let dry for 2 years. It developed a crack on one side, as it dried. I addressed this by cutting the cracked section off and building a segmented section to take it’s place.  Then I tuned the whole thing down to a finished piece.
