Just a bowl made of southern yellow pine which is plentyful here in Georgia. It finished up at 2×9 1/2 in. with 3 or 4 coats of tung oil.

Nice looking bowl. Tung oil makes for a great finish. Good job.

That old SYP gets disrespected a lot by those of us down south who see so much of it, but it can really make a nice turning sometimes, as you proved here.

I agree with CM – pine is often considered to be junk. But I have some old, built in cabinets made from pine. They’re beautiful and add character to our home. I’ve found that the pine I’ve turned can tear out in chunks, which makes it a technical challenge. Pine has nice tones.
