A copper bowl, uncoated. Uncoated copper is traditional for raising egg whites (monter en neige) as the copper acts as a catalyst for the protein denaturing that allows the egg whites to capture air and whip.

No soup for you!
But brownie points for creativity.

Need a hint. What kind of finish is being applied? French polish the quick way?

I have no idea what it is, but for you guessers, it is small - look at the size of his finger in the image.

Hmmm. I don't see a finger. But I see a big hairy arm with a wristwatch or something.

I'm guessing some green wood, kept moist to reduce checking, to make a warped bowl when it dries.

I have to say, it looks a lot like brass, but the shavings look wrong for metal.

But I really liked Paul-Marcel's guess...

Hmm. Ok, hints. Things in the picture - an arm, not a finger. Pine. Aluminum. Plastic.

Default My Guess:

It's a jpeg image of an arm, some pine, aluminum, plastic, and it includes a portion of a lathe and some shavings.

So, how'd I do? I can eat a LOT of peanutbutter thingies.
