A pair of maple bowls. The wood is just ordinary Oregon Walnut. I left the little bowl with more of a satin finish and polished the outside. The larger bowl was really fun to turn as the wood just behaved.
Still need to work on my camera white balance.

Wish I had some just plain ol ordinary Oregon walnut! Were I live in Florida there is about 500 varieties of oak, which I am not fond of on the lathe. Nice bowls – the walnut is quite stunning!

Thanks. Not too much oak up here. Lots of softer maple and plenty of alder, and fir.

I really like the lip on the smaller bowl. They turned out grate!

-- I love my lathe. It’s old, not too pretty and I don’t really know how to use it… Love it!
