This is most likely apple.
Started with a small log:
resawed it to get a good blank with the pith off to one side. This is the leftover piece.
I then rounded it out on the band saw and mounted a faceplate on the flat side:
And turned the bottom:
This shows the tenon with extra bit cut off:
This was then mounted in the 4 jaw chuck to turn the inside of the bowl:

Reverse mounted it in the jam chuck to turn off the tenon and tidy up the foot.
Finished bowl (4 1/4″ dia.)
Oiled with orange oil
after applying beeswax, carnuba wax and orange oil mixture:
