Two bowls and a cigar holder. Bowls are maple and Osage orange.
Small Osage orange bowl, about 3" in diameter.
With a little crack in the side.
This is a strip of maple from a branch. It either fell or one of the branches trimmed a couple of years ago. It's about 3 foot long and 8 to 12 inches wide. Only about 2ish inches thick though, so I thought I would aim for some platter type objects.
In execution, more bowl than platter. About 8 inches across at the rim. Lots of worm or bug tracks, which is a byproduct of turning wood so close to the bark I suppose.
I used a pretty shallow mortise on the bottom, and it held great. Mortise is about 3/16" deep.
