Hi Jerry and welcome. One member calls that error "typonese" and most of us read it and are guilty of it. I don't recognize it. Does it seem heavy or light for it's size and does it seem hard or soft compared to other woods? As much info as possible may help.

Welcome Gary. Please take the time to fill out your Profile. It's easy to find just below your logon at the top right of your screen.

It might help if you knew where the bowl was made. There are a lot of different woods in different parts of the World and knowing where the bowl came from would provide a good beginning to the search. The tree rings show that it was rapidly growing, so close to the Equator might be a good clue, but I wouldn't venture any guess without knowing more about where it came from.

Thanks all for the welcome....I don't know where the bowl was made (picked it up at a yard sale). It seems a little lighter than a monkey pod bowl I have have of the same general size, but not much. The picture I posted yesterday was taken after I moistened it to bring out the grain. I have added two more taken in the sunshine without any moisture. The picture of the bottom of the bowl where I haven't sanded off the finish is a blond color. It doesn't seem as hard as monkey pod, but harder than koa (if that helps!):laugh2:
