These are my first three attempts at turning. The first one was made from some cherry that a buddy of mine gave me (he’s a turner and salvaged this wood from a neighbour’s tree). This first bowl taught me the basics of turning and most importantly it taught me that you really need to pay attention to your depth when hollowing out the bowl :(.
The next two attempts were much more rewarding. Both made from some Norway Maple that another friend gave me (he works for the city tree service). The live edge bowl was an interesting experience, turning that much air got a little scary at times. Since it was my third bowl I got a little more brave and decided to see how thin I could turn it. I stopped at about 1/8” thick, however the thickness isn’t as consistent as I’d like. I can see light through it at the transition point between the sides and bottom.
thanks for checking them out…
