    10 3/4" (at the rim) x 4" Genuine Texas Mesquite (accept no substitutes), one of the logs I picked up from @David Hill a few months back. Man I just love Mesquite. Sanded to 400, Youkshire grit, then finished with OB's Shine and nothing more.

    Thank you! The brand is 1". I bought a 2" one first then forgot my basic geometry (a 2" x 2" square does NOT fit inside a 2" diameter hole) so it's too big for most bowls. I didn't think to put it on for this bowl. The 1" is plenty big.
