Very neat bowl! I have a few burl caps laying around. Did you turn it on the lathe or use a carving disk on a grinder?

It was turned on a General 260-20VD lathe. Thanks for your comments

I’ve looked at the 3 bowls a few times now and am wondering if this was the Butternut. They are all titled Maple. I too wondered if this bowl was carved. It’s hard to tell it was turned with just one picture. They all look great and are quite different, nice work! The wipe on poly is a lot of work but sure shows off the wood nice.

It is Maple Burl. Yesterday I turned 3 bowls that I mentioned but the other maple burl is the only one if the 3 I posted. I would post more pictures to show the bottom but it is gone now. When turning burls I normally turn a dovetail mortise in the bottom and mount on my vicmarc chuck. It is a solid way to hold a piece and saves a bunch of remounting and power sanding off a dowel. I always turn every part of my bowls, never sanded bottoms. Thank you for commenting.
