I have no idea what wood this is, it is from a log I picked up in a park nearby. The condition of the log (rotten) and my skills (likewise, but improving) combined to create a rather rustic piece.
This is certainly as big a bowl I can make with my midi lathe. Since the wood was extremely wet in places the piece was totally out of balance even after it was turned round.
I turned to final thickness while wet and let it dry indoors for a couple of months before I sanded and finished it. It warped a bit, but not too badly.
