Son of Big Mama

lm2Still working the off-cuts of that spalted maple. I found a labeled piece of Ambrosia Maple out in the wood room and it looks suspiciously like this stuff albeit without the black lines — which look a bit like someone had taken a Sharpie to the different shades. In fact, this whole piece has a somewhat cartoon-like quality to it. There is a yellowish stain that goes down deep in the wood (just like the Ambrosia piece I have). If it weren’t such a small spot it may have added to the character, now I just call it a flaw. The lid is a pop fit and made from walnut. This vessel is about 3″ tall. Finished with lacquer and wax.
Here are a couple of more views:



And here it is alongside of Big Mama for size comparison.
