I'd keep that bowl myself. Classic look. My wife would fill it with M&Ms.

That's a beautiful bowl Harry. The last, and only time I turned a bowl was in grade 8 shop class. They taught us a lot back then about woodworking that kids don't get to learn now. I doubt that no 12 or 13 year old would be allowed to use a chisel let alone a lathe like we were. I always wanted to get a lathe but never had the room for it.

When my Junior High School opened back in '66 we had a new fully equipped wood shop with rough sewn lumber, like American Walnut at .95 a board foot and as wide as 12-14", along with about a dozen other wood species to choose from. We weren't allowed to take shop class till we were in the 8th grade so I had 2 years, no not in 8th grade, but 8th and 9th to take shop. High School had drafting and no shop. I have very fond memories of both my shop teachers who instilled both a passion to learn and build. Mr. Orr and Mr McDaniel are often thought of when I'm in my shop.

Now about 10-15 years ago they decided to turn that shop room into a damned computer lab. They didn't have anything in the original budget for maintaining the equipment when the school opened. That was an after thought. But a computer lab can be anywhere like the cafeteria when not feeding the kids. I mean take a wonderful shop class and make a computer lab? Who does this?

After the rant I forgot to mention,really nice bowl Herb. Curious about the fixture used to hold the bowl while cleaning up the base. What do you call that? I have got to start doing some turnings.....I did join a wood turning group to learn more...some...time to put that Shopsmith Mark 7 to work.

That's known as a doughnut chuck, a member who hasn't posted for a long time showed me one that he had made. This member plus several others got me started with wood turning. The only previous experience was one afternoon in 1947/8 in high school, using an ancient lathe driven by belt from overhead which also drove the ancient metal lathe and large wet grinder.

That is so cool. I've never seen one of these before. Mind if I show this to the wood turners group? BTW, they meet at the Richmond,VA Woodcraft store. Should make me look like the newbie I am at this....

Love the shape. I've seen the lids before and thought about buying some but I have too many parts for projects waiting to be made already.
