This bowl is poplar, about 8 inches in diameter and 2 1/2 inches tall.
To preserve as much of the blank as possible, I put a glue block on the bottom, attached a faceplate to the glue block, and turned the outside. I turned it around and trued up the top, then removed all but one screw from the faceplate and rotated the blank about 3/4” off center. I re-installed 3 screws in the face plate and hollowed the bowl. The grooves in the top were cut with a point tool, then burned in with a piece of formica.
