Have you ever turned a Bowl from a Bowling Ball?

Wondering how he found the perfect concentric point on the tail of the bowling ball to start???
If you look closely, it's not quite centered when he first mounts it on the lathe. But then the camera cuts to a new shot and it's centered and balanced. I'm guessing he did it the old fashioned way...trial and error. He just cut that part out of the video.

I'm kind of surprised he went to all that work to make a nice-looking bowl, and then just hacked the tenon off with a saw instead of finishing the bottom nicely.
