This was a crotch from the 3 yr old branches I picked up on the farm last week. I had no idea what is was but now I can see the oak grain in it. This is the first oak bowl I have ever made and it was pretty well gone when I mounted it in the lathe. It finished at about 5” across and 1 1/4” high and about .080 wall.. I turned away most all of the rotten wood.This one did not come out heart shaped either.
It is finished with 8 coats of semi gloss lacquer.
