This is only a small bowl with a diameter of 4 1/2 inches and stands 3 i/2 inches tall. As you can see i left some bark on to give it a slight rustic look.

very nice grain on this piece, and the area next to the bark really adds warmth to it.

Nice little bowl. Doesn’t fruit wood turn nicely. Apple, pear, plum and apricot are my favorite turning woods. A couple of constructive criticisms would be; The small foot makes it look tippy and easily knocked over and sides could be a little thinner for that delicate look.
I have a bunch of apple wood I have accumulated that I need to use. I’m trying to let some of it spauld to see how that works with apple.
