About 5.5 inches wide, by 2 inches tall. Turned from myrtle. Went pretty well overall. Guess I wasn’t trying anything too crazy on it. Finished with my usual tung oil and shellac finish, though mostly without the friction on this one. I think the last six or seven coats of shellac were brushed on after some hand sanding.

Looking good Dave. It looks like the inside bottom is flat across, great job. I have a few myrtle blanks out in the shop to turn.

Thanks, SteveN!

Thanks, Dick!

Thanks, Tom!

I agree, Peter! I was happily surprised when I got I to it and started to see what I had to work with! Thanks!

Thanks, Eric. It’s pretty flat. Not completely, but close.

Thanks, Pottz! A friend of mine turned a bowl like this for me four or five years ago, and I decided to see if I could copy it. Not even close, but I still like it.

Nope. This was a chunk from Cook Woods. It’ll be a few weeks before I bust into your stash.
