Kentucky Ambrosia Maple Bowl

I have talked about Ambrosia Maple at some length in another post, not published as of October 27, but coming soon, so I won’t go on about the wood here.  2014-10-27 19.09.08

This wood was special because it was purchased in Louisville Kentucky while on a family visit trip.  There is a small local wood turning shop, Choice Woods, that was just setting up when I visited, that had a great deal of local woods for sale at very reasonable prices.  Oddly, they don’t seem to have a web presence at this time.2014-10-27 19.09.18

This bowl proved remarkably easy to make, the maple turned beautifully and the end grain sanded smooth quite easily.  Honestly, it was a joy to make and it is easily one of my favorites.

I hope you enjoy seeing it as much as I enjoyed making it.
