This is more of a place to store loose change then a bowl. I was experimenting with different shapes after I began getting frustrated with my lathe(its a midi therefore I can’t turn large diameters). Halfway through the worm holes appeared. They give the piece a nice feel I think, and where kind of a pleasant surprise. I finished this with my favorite lathe applied friction polish. It was with this project I also began trying reverse chucking, and jam chucking. I was relatively successful as you can see from the smooth bottom. As always I welcome and encourage questions, comments and solutions. Thanks for lookin’

I would leave it as it is Mjlauro. The worm holes make a good talking point.

Very cool wood, and a really nice shape. You’re right about those worm holes being a pleasant surprise, that’s one of the best things about working with wood, I think.

-- Happy woodworking!

I second the previous comments. Great bowl, and the holes provide interest.
