Recently completed a basic bowl turning class at Rockler. The instructor was Bill Dalton. I had previously tried a couple of bowls, but did not turn out well. The class provided enough detail for me to finish these two.
One on the left is a maple bowl blank I purchased. Not sure if was spalted, but the inside had nice grain that left a couple of marks on each side. Finish is mineral oil and crystal clear wax.
The right one is ditch wood. I think it is spalted maple also. Finish is wipe only poly and EEE ultra shine.
Used mostly traditional bowl gouge and also carbide tipped tools.
Looking forward to doing more bowls.
