Topic tags/keywords: question oak lathe turning rustic

I cut this big hollow tree for firewood and found a few interesting “bumps” inside. Most of the had rocks inside of then and were basically useless. But I managed to rescue this one from it. It looks fairly solid but I am not sure. Should I cut the round part for a bowl and of so, what should I do with the rest?? Any suggestions is appreciated.

My initial thought was to soak the round part in CA glue and then cover it with 2 way epoxy before turning it??

Have no idea but a very interesting piece to play with.

woodbutcherbynight, I think so too. I think for sure I need to soak it with CA. Will let it dry for a while before proceeding.
