But I've had this piece of White Oak Burl in my shop for about 10 or 11 years.... we picked it up when we got Harley, from same place, and I just never knew what I wanted to do with it... was very irregular in shape... was cut wonky.... finally decided to more or less square it up and see if I could work a bowl our of it...
The bowl turned out to be 8 inches diameter by 3 inches at the lip.... I don't measure volume as Dave Hoskins does, so can't tell you that.
Finish is sanding up to about 400, then adding an abrasive past before a coat of sanding sealer, then 3 coats of wipe on poly. The cold has slowed the drying of the finish some, but it seems to have turned out okay.

Thanks, always appreciate the complements.

Will say this was dry and very hard... had a few odd pieces left over and gave one to my step son to do a couple of pens ... they are pretty too. don't have pictures though... he didn't share them with me.
