Here is a bowl that made on the lathe from some scrap wood I found in an old pile of wood on the farm. Not sure what kind of wood it is. Walnut? Either way, I was pleased with the grain on this piece after it was turned. I buffed the bowl with the Beall Buffing System and then finished it off with some Renaissance Wax.

That second picture, that looks a lot like an Ambrosia Beetle track. As in ambrosia maple. But the wood seems too dark for maple. But a beautiful bowl!

Thanks Monte and Tennessee. Now that you mention it, it does look a lot like Ambrosia. Not only the Ambrosia Beetle track that you pointed out, but also the grain pattern. Perhaps I got an unusually dark piece somehow.
