On September 23rd I bought my RingMaster and it arrived soon after. I did get the variable speed because, well just because.
I made a nice table area for it and commenced to making chips fly. In all reality, thats all I did was make chips fly – no bowls. Or at least no bowls that could be salvaged.
A couple weeks ago I decided it was time to make use of my investment and below are the results of that endeavor.

Picture 1 and 2 are a plywood bowl I made out of 3/4” plywood sheathing – the reason ? it was a test, I think it passed.
Picture 3 and 4 are cherry and oak
Picture 5, and 6 are oak and walnut sapwood

I must confess that after glue up, I did put them on the Nova lathe that I also recently bought and saved myself some sanding time. Although I finally did get the RM adjusted to eliminate QUITE a bit of sanding.

Bottom line – I guess between the RM and the Nova I can create til my hearts content.

Yes, I’ve been there many times – really informative.
I actually have about a dozen bowls done in different configurations. The hardest part now is deciding what and how to glue up woods to create unique patterns.
