Second turned bowl from a scrap chunk of 8/4 walnut. Went with a bell shape for a challenge.
The third bowl has interesting genesis. I told a friend I was planning get a lathe for Christmas and he invited me over to give his lathe a spin. He had a chunk of oak for me to try turning a bowl and I shaped the outside nicely, but when I cut the tenon for the chuck I cut it a tiny fraction too small and it kept spinning off the chuck. So I took it home and showed off the nice outside and unfinished inside. Today I decided to spin it back onto the worm screw and make a new tenon. I made it into a hollow expansion tenon to save as much of the bowl as possible and turned this shallow bowl from the rescued screw-up.
This turning is a blast!
