I bought a second lathe from a gentleman a couple months ago.
He gave me a bunch of other stuff including some chucks, tools, and wood.
One of the pieces of wood was this padauk bowl about 10 inches in diameter.
He got it at a garage sale for 50 cents because a previous owner had spilled something in it that had hardened in the bottom.
I remounted and turned it to get the stuff out.
It had warped a little over time so I ended up taking some of the thickness off to get it round again.
Craftsman tube-style lathe, 12” diameter capacity, 48” between centers.
Tung oil I think (I forgot.)
