This one is about 9” in diameter. Finished with walnut oil. I don’t know the species. Came from the firewood pile.

Is that the real color or did the oil turn it that way ?

BC , my first thought was also Ash , but the color is throwing me off and the grain doesn’t look quite right.

I don’t think the oil gives it too much color, probably about the same as BLO. Whatever it is it grew here in Utah.

Elm sure has some nice looking grain to it.

The elm I’ve worked with was much darker and I agree with Vern, elm does have some very beautiful grain. I am color blind so you all have to help me out here but doesn’t the grain pattern look like orange osage?

After thinking about it, it does have an elm look/appearance. Not knowing chrisz’s location it’s hard to speculate what you might find in his firewood pile.

Another great bowl. Wonderful shape and grain. Fantastic save from the fire.
Keep it up.

Pretty grain. I’d guess catalpa by the color & grain, but I’ve never turned it, so I can’t comment on its turning characteristics. It does look like elm, but a little less red. Osage is pretty unmistakable, and it is definitely not osage, IMHO. Where are you located? That would help in the id.
