Thanks for all the responce. You know the best part of the whole thing was thaa I was able to pass to him a love for turning wood. This kid grew up without a father and he really trys to connect with me (I gotta admit I like him too). Whenever he shows an interest in somthing I'm doing I try to get him involved. It was great to see him standing @ the lathe trying to turn the little bowl, and then when it clicked the look on his face was priceless. He could hardly wait till the next day for the glue-up to cure so he could start on the cup. The only part of the cup that I made was the handle.
We decided to finish it with a two part epoxy and just use it as a display. It will look great on his desk, and I'm sure he will enjoy telling folks that HE made it.
