Woodturnings by John H. Williams

Big Leaf Maple Burl

This hollow form is turned from Big Leaf Maple Burl. Eight spiraling flutes have been carved in its surface to enhance the dynamic figure of the burl. A high gloss finish was applied to increase the reflectivity of the surface.

Special attention was given to control of the wall thickness when hollowing this piece. If you handle this piece it is extremely smooth and much lighter in weight than one might think before holding it.

5" Dia. x 4-1/2" High
