Small natural edge bowl

I was given a challenge by DST on a piece of wood he sent me in swap. I believe it is myrtlewood (or another laurel). Whatever it is this stuff smeeled amazing as I was turning it. Anyway, the challenge was what to do with this piece (it was a piece of limb a little over 2" in diameter and about a foot long). I haven't done many natural edge bowls, so I thought why not do a tiny one? Here it is, enjoy.

Hey that rocks!!!
Smallest answer to a challenge I have ever seen. Should have you making collection plates for church. They would finally be filled.
Nice job. I hope the rest of the Myrtle wood is as much fun.

That's really cool Steve. You got out the mini tools for this one. Well done.

Actually turned the outside with a 1/2" bowl gouge for most of it. Finish cuts with a 1/4 spindle gouge. Turned the inside with a 3/8 spindle gouge and a 1/2 scraper. And turned it on a full size lathe
;-)

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

SD,
Didn't realize just how cool that was until I spotted the penny next to it. Good job,

Ok so we have the detail on the tools and lathe. But the debate goes on. Was it a chuck or faceplate?
