I’ve started self-learning bowl turning, as the lathe in my shop doesn’t get nearly enough love, and I like the idea of knocking out little projects like these between larger pieces. The first bowl is from a chunk of catalpa that I rescued from the firewood box, and the second one is from a mystery scrap that was labelled maple, but is definitely not maple. Both are around 4” across, and both are finished using a food-safe beeswax/mineral oil polish.
