Yep Ryan been there done that. Still turned out to be a nice bowl. I sell a lot of that size for change bowls.

If the wooden floor were darker, I would say you took that pic in our house between the tile and Myrna's office. Oh, no dogs as in pic 2.
No matter how you got there; it is a neat bowl. I'll bet it gets used a lot.
My very first bowl stays on the staircase on the 8th step up. It captures things like earrings and watches after going out. Later in the day they get carried on up to their proper home. It IS a very well used small bowl.

First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
That's actually laminate (AC4 grade which is roughly what you'd use in a shopping mall) I put in a few years back. The only think that really gives it away is that there is an occasional repeated pattern and the edges have the annoying trim over top instead of flush trim.
The bowl is just a bit over 6" across - I have big hands. I'm planning on giving it back to the guy whos firewood pile I stole it out of
Nicely done, Ryan. Oak's not one of my favorite woods to turn...you did a nice job with this piece.
And I think the dogs aren't bummed because the bowl is inedible, it's because it's empty.

Wouldnt matter to my big dog, She just ate the rim off her plastic water bowl. Nice work, BTW.

What you ended up with turned out to be a pretty good looking bowl.

My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
