I turned this maple bowl on the lathe in my shop. The wood comes from a Vermont maple tree used to make maple sugar for generations. When old age claimed the tree the wood was distinctly colored by the tapping process and a fungus that had created a distinctive marking called spalting. The wood is solid and takes on a fine, glossy finish.
