I had a couple of small bowl blanks that my grandfather had in his shop in 1971. This is one of the bowls that I made from the wood. As far as I can tell this should be Maple, but it may be Ash. The wood is very hard and was a pain to get all the end grain to clean up.

Nice job of turning Eric, I like the shape, looks bigger than the Maple and Walnut bowls.
