First bowl I’ve ever done and really only the second project I’ve done on the lathe. Walnut with pony bead inlay finished with danish oil.

I’ll have to say for your first attempt this looks pretty good. To date I have not tried my hand at turning a bowl as I have a spring pole lathe. I know it can be done and several folks have had success turning bowls with a spring pole … I just haven’t gotten around to making a mandrel.

Very impressive for first bowl/ second project! I’ve done 4 bowls and none look nearly as good as yours! Lathe work is only an addiction that rapidly grows

Yep well done that even looks like a bowl.

So well done on your first project.

I might suggest Some work on photo taking is needed along with development of an interesting story.
Then if time permits your home page, otherwise I might mistake you for a gypsy.
