I turned this one today.  It’s maple with a little stain from an Ambrosia beetle.  8 1/2 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches tall at the highest point.  I turned and sanded it while it was still wet.  Usually I rough turn and let it dry, but I thought I’d try finishing it wet to see how it dries.  Hopefully it won’t crack.  I really like the little black specks in the wood.  I have a couple of more pieces from the same tree, so hopefully they will be as nice as this piece.
