Mystery wood bowl *PIC*

>Hi everyone,

Remember a few days ago when I said I was picking up a 10-12" lilac trunk? It wasn't lilac. I haven't got a good idea of what it may be but here is a bowl I made from one of the crotches. Turned it green from start to finish. Sanded to 400 grit with 2 coats of Flecto Natural Oil Finish (danish oil of some sort).

Two things.... What do you think of the bowl, especially regarding the form and shape? Remember, I'm trying to get better at form and proportion so I need your help. Second, any idea what kind of wood this is? I'll attach some pics of a bowl blank in another message.

Thanks!
Steve Kubien
