This bowl is Spalted Buckeye (Horse Chestnet) and is 7" X 2" and about 1/8" thick on the walls. Finished with a coat of sanding sealer and 3 coats of brush on Deft and buffed with the beall. I am happy with the looks of this wood and it was easy to turn. This is another one where I used the shop vac and the Nova vac attachment to finish the bottom.
