Oak bowl with a hole

At least I think it's oak. 6 1/2"x 2" after I cut the tenon off . Needs a little more hand sanding and a couple more coats of finish.

I like it a lot! Way to incorporate that "blemish" into the bowl and make it unique. Very cool. What finish have you put on it so far? Could it be red elm? Oak or elm, either way, nice work!

A couple of coats of wipe on poly.

Tim, I can't tell for sure, but I think that doesn't look like oak. Can you get a closer & better focused pic?

I like it hole and all. What did you use to cut under the rim?

When I saw the title, I didn't expect it to look that nice. Very cool.

Awsome!! Is it tough to keep the tools from catching in the hole?

phinds: I'll get some closer pics later this evening. I've got another piece so I'll get a pic of the bark too.

mars: take a look here: http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f6/ev...e-tools-10006/

burkhome: No, on piece like that especially you turn the speed up on the lathe and it's no problem.

Everyone else: Thanks.

Very nice Tim.
I like the shape and whatever the wood is. Don't put cereal in this one.
