Wood was apiece that was to be thrown away. and I says to the guy , Nooooo. I can use it. Watch those contractors and their thrown out end pieces, Free wood. Will give it to her tomorrow.
Don’t take very good pictures ,but here it is.

Beautiful Bowl!!! I can’t wait to get my Lathe Chuck so I can start turning some bowls.

If you don’t mind me asking, what Lathe Chuck do you use?

Thanks!

Nice piece with a good, sturdy shape. The wall thickness and wider base give it a “reliable” look. Many bowls look like they’d tip over if you breathed on them. This piece looks like you could put food in it and not have to worry. Nice change of pace.
