When I started to turn this, I had no idea how wormy it was! No live ones, but there was a real cloud of worm scat in the shop.

It is 5” in diameter and 3 1/4” high. I filled the wormholes with a mixture of epoxy and key shavings, but had to re-turn it which exposed some of the wormholes. I decided to leave well enough alone.

Finish is 5 coats of wipe-on poly.

That’s just fine… as long you don’t put liquids in it… :)

COOL!

At least you didn’t find any live ones in there. I had some birch that was infested with bronze birch borer. Oh so fun to hit a larva while turn and have half its body land on your forehead.

But seriously, very nice bowl. Did you turn it with a bowl gouge or some other tool like a scraper or something?

Bowl gouge on the outside and hollowing the interior … negative rake round-nose bowl scraper for finish cuts inside.
