This was the most gnarly, cantankerous chunk of wood that I’ve ever worked with. Dulled a bowl gouge with every pass and fought me every step of the way. It’s also extremely dense and the bowl weighs a ton even though the walls aren’t super thick. It sure has some cool character in it, however, particularly for oak.

A simple shape works well when you have such a beautiful piece of wood.
