ok this is a mystery bowl because i have no idea what the wood is,it was a large slice about 3” thick and 30” oval.had a lot of cracks and bug holes which you can see in pic 4 filled with ca glue.you may see some of the small cracks also.last pic is chunk with bark on,anyone know what it is? after cutting it up i had to turn a piece.5-1/2”d x 2-3/4”h.did some wire burns.finished with mylands friction polish.for andre i went thinner on the sides this time about 1/8”.got carried away though the bottom is only about 1/16”,almost blew it.all comments or tips and suggestions welcome.

Beautiful turning Pottz, wish I could help you with identifying the wood. I though walnut, but to light. Either way that looks great,

All that stuff you said about it gives it character. It’s not like all other turnings. Nice Pottz

Looking great Pottz,
Don’t know what wood that might be and I’m finding that I have a hard time identifying wood with the bark still on it.
You’re getting those walls pretty thin my friend and it looks GOOD.
