Mystery wood bowl

Found in the woods and from the bark thought it was oak, planned to make some handles, but it’s not oak. Might be hackberry? In any case I used one of the half rounds to make a small bowl, finished in Odies Oil. There was a surprise knot that adds a bit of character. I’ll keep it for my keys and pennies.

It will make a great key bowl and more. It does have some interesting looking grain.

It might be the light it was taken in, but it looks persimmon. If it that sort of gold color it probably is. If it’s closer to white than yellow and got really hard after drying it could be hackberry. Persimmon still turns well when dry. Polishes up wonderfully too.

Yeah the color is off in that picture, should be more of a light tan. It’s heavier than the silver maple bowls that are about the same size. It went slightly oval over the winter.
