My first bowl ever

I’ve made a ton of pens and other stuff on the lathe but never a bowl. Rockler had a stack of figured maple bowl blanks so I grabbed a few AAA pieces. Here’s the first one I turned. While not as challenging as I thought it would be, it was certainly a learning experience. I was experimenting with a Sorby spiraling tool on the bottom.

Fantastic first bowl. Nice shape and you picked a terrific piece of maple.

Keep it up.

Really nice bowl, finish and shape.

This looks like it would be a lot of fun to do. The bowl looks good.
