I really like the way you finished the base.

Great looking bowl. Fantastic for a first turn. What kind of wood and what is the size?

Keep practicing. We all learn from every project, so keep them coming.

Great first bowl. Forget my question to you if you turn!
What did you use for finish on the bowl?

Thanks for sharing!
