A couple bowls, the first is from a stump I found in the park close to my house, if you know what kind of wood it is it would be extremely helpful! It turned nicely, and has no finish yet as it was turned green, dimensions are: 3 1/4×1 14/16 walls are about 1/48 thick, i’ll show pics when it has a finish
The second is some kind of maple, made it for my mom for Christmas Dimensions are about the same of the other, but the walls are much thicker

Workin on getting a supernova, but it won’t fit the lathe I have, 1964 or ‘48 Logan Lathe, it’s for metal, but it’ll work fine for what i’m doin
So right now I have to do all the turning without being able to remount it…

Welcome to LumberJocks Mike. I see you’re in Florida so my guess is some kind of gum for the wood. Good job turning such small bowls. The last picture sure helps with the size since you put your fingers in the picture.

Regards,
