Nice work on this. The shape is nice and the Sycamore looks great too. The first of many. It will get easier fast. Have fun!

I am new to turning bowls too. Boy, there really are a lot of little tricks and techniques to learn.

Looks like you are learning them fast,

Great work, bowl turning can be addictive. Save your first one so you can look back and view your progress.
