Final turn from a green bowl blank

Just finished up a nice midsized bowl. I'm very pleased at how it turned out.

I lost track of the wood type, but I believe it is a chunk of Elm. The bowl is 6 7/8 inch in diameter and about 2 1/4 deep. Shellac finish overcoated with an application of paste wax.

Hope everyone is having a good day. take care.

That is exactly what was done. This was the final turning stage, sorry I did not take a photo of the rough turn a few weeks ago. Thanks for the "help"?

Take care,

Scott,
I'm sorry but I really do not understand what you are saying. The dimensions I posted in my original post are accurate.

Take care,
Dave McCann
