Walnut bowl from an offcut of a fancy gunstock blank, I’m not sure what type of walnut it is.
This is my thinnest piece to date, and very light weight.
Approximately 8”x 2 1/2”
Finish is several coats of WOP buffed out with steel wool.
I made this for a donation to an auction benefiting our family reunion fund but I liked it too much to part with so I wound up donating another piece instead.

Not a bit surprised you kept it. No way I would part with a bowl that fine either.

It looks like turkish walnut (used mostly for gunstocks) to me, but wow, what beautiful grain! And a great looking bowl to boot! Very nice! What type of finish did you use? I’m hopeful my local wood supplier can score some turkish walnut gunstock blanks for this reason!
